This will be accomplished through familiarizing you with the numerous theories that have been formulated over the years, all attempting to account for criminal behavior. The course will devote the majority of its effort to the elaboration of traditional criminological theory and will begin with an account of crime patterns and the reactions to criminal events. Blackboard technology will be used throughout the course to make announcements, post grades and documents.

Therefore, missing multiple classes will likely adversely affect your final grade.
