This subject aims to introduce students to the historical development of the discipline of criminology and provides a broad overview of the major theoretical approaches to crime. It will provide students with the tools to apply theory to crime by explaining crime and understanding responses to crime. Students will develop the skills to critically analyse these theoretical perspectives and identify their strengths and weaknesses.
