In this subject you learn to identify the main streams of criminological thought from both psychological and sociological perspectives. Within those broad streams, you will be able to list and define key criminological theories and the social, historical, cultural and political contexts in which they developed. You will evaluate these theories on a range of criteria such as whether they address laws, crimes, criminals or victims as subjects; whether the explanation is at the micro, meso or macro level; and what the ideological position of the theoretician might be. They will be able to apply these to contemporary justice issues, crime problems and to specific case studies.
