CRJ 102 – 110W | Criminology | Spring 2023| Professor Satenik Margaryan

This is an introductory and foundational course in the study of crime and justice. It is designed to introduce students to the various historical and contemporary theories and empirical research used to understand deviant and criminal behavior. This course takes a critical approach to the study of the definition and measurement of crime, as well as applications of these theories to practice and in policy. Offending and victimization, as these relate to specific crime types (i.e., white collar crime, violent crime, sex crime, drug related crimes, etc.) will be explored. Prerequisites: SOC 100, (ENG 88 or ESL 94) and ACR 94

Race, Ethnicity, and Inclusion Working Group (Social Science)

Race, Equity and Inclusion (REI) at BMCC is centered on the college’s work necessary to understanding and addressing systemic racism to create a more equitable system for individuals and families from historically marginalized groups. The Department of Social Sciences, Human Services and Criminal Justice has created its own REI committee to actively work to dismantle systemic racism and structural inequality across the department. We seek to work with our colleagues to think critically about course content to promote more inclusive teaching and learning.
