Students in this course will increase their skills in the analysis of deviant and criminal groups. Most of the class time is devoted to the study of a variety of social science theories (psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science) about deviant and criminal behaviour, and the corresponding supporting research. By understanding a multiple theories, the students' mental flexibility will increase. Using this information, students will be taught how to develop persuasive inductive and deductive arguments for their clients - arguments that challenge assumptions and poorly supported decisions. To communicate these arguments to their clients, the students will learn various styles of charts and graphs. In short, students will learn how to utilize social science information to create well supported and logically sound analytical products that are easy to understand. Students will learn how to develop a solid foundation from which they can confidently make predictions and recommendations about deviant and criminal behaviour.
