Criminological Theory Full Course

Classical School of Criminology and Present Day Crime and Crime Prevention

The primary argument of the classical school of criminology is that offenders commit crimes due to rational choice. As discussed in the Classical School of Criminology video, rational choice theory focuses on offenders weighing the risks versus rewards prior to engaging in a criminal act (Dorsey, 2013). If the risks are low and the rewards are high, the offender will engage in the crime. However, if the risks are high and the reward is low, the offender generally will not engage in the offense. In addition to the aforementioned, the classical school of criminology also contends that punishment is the primary way to deter crime. In order for punishment to be effective, it must be swift, severe, and certain. In your paper,

Explain how crime can be prevented as it relates to the beliefs of the classical school of criminology; Assess the major components of the classical school of crime causation; Discuss specific and general deterrence as it relates to the presence of punishment and the challenges to create deterrence in today’s society; and Discuss how risk can be increased and rewards decreased as it relates to conventional crimes and the rational choice theory.

CRJ 512 Week 2 Assignment – Victim’s Role in Victimization

Victim’s Role in Victimization

In Chapter 3 of the text, Siegel discusses victims and victimization. Victimization theories argue that victims are sometimes responsible for their own victimization. There are three primary theories of victimization that attempt to explain the aforementioned. The theories focus on victimization as it relates to conventional crimes. In your paper,

Explain how victims can protect themselves from being victimized. Discuss when and where the rates of victimization are the highest. Select one of the four theories of victimization discussed in the Siegel (2015) text, and analyze how the ideas contained therein can be applied to the study of victimization.

CRJ 512 Week 3 Conflict Criminology and Sociology

Conflict Criminology and Sociology

The concept of critical criminology has been prevalent among criminologists for decades. A derivative of Marxist Theory, the primary focus of conflict criminology is the disparities linked to economic, social, and political affiliation.   Chapter 8 in your primary textbook and the MSU Professor Michalsenvideo discuss social conflict and critical criminology (Siegel, 2015, & Michalsen, 2011).

In your paper

  • Explain how conflict theory is related to both criminology and sociology using appropriate terminology.
  • Discuss how politics play a role in conflict theory using appropriate terminology.
  • Discuss how politics influence crime rates of the lower class using appropriate terminology.
  • Evaluate various sociological schools of crime causation using appropriate terminology.
  • Your paper must
  • Be three to five double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

CRJ 512 Week 4 Assignment Controlling Violent Crime

Controlling Violent Crime

There are many factors that can be associated with the cause of violent crime. Research suggests that some of the factors include severe mental health abnormalities, children who are consistently exposed to violence at home, firearm availability, the independent subculture of violence, and the socialization process, just to name a few. In addition, it has also been found that when homicide occurs, there is often a preexisting relationship that is present. Some relationships include a romantic relationship, narcotic seller/narcotic buyer relationship, or a gang rivalry. Despite the understanding of the aforementioned, criminal justice professionals still have difficulty controlling homicides. Review Chapter 10 in your primary text, and watch the videoMurder Capital USA Ganglands of Chicago, which discusses the high murder rates in Chicago and focuses on contributing factors (Siegel, 2015; Danzo1212, 2013). In your paper,

  • Critique a criminological theory that explains why homicides occur.
  • Discuss ways to decrease and control homicides in the United States.
  • Discuss some of the factors of focus of the various sociological schools of crime causation that explain why murder occurs.

Your paper must

  • Be three to five double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in theAshford Writing Center.
  • Include a separate title page with the following:
    • Title of paper

CRJ 512 Week 5 Social Bonding Theory

Social Bonding Theory

Travis Hirshi’s social bonding theory is a form of social control. While other criminological theories attempt to explain why crime occurs, social bonding theory explains why people conform to the norms of society and away from deviant and antisocial behaviors. Many argue the threat of punishment as being a deterrent. However, Travis Hirshi, in his contentions, believes there are other factors beyond punishment that are responsible for conformity. Review Chapter 7 in your primary text, and watch The Social Bond Theory video, which provides examples of the four elements of the theory (Siegel, 2015; Hiemstra, 2013). In your paper,

Explain Travis Hirschi’s social bonding theory.

Describe the four elements of social bonding theory.

Discuss how the social bonding theory affects conformity in America.

Discuss the relationship between social bonding theory and the various sociological schools of crime causation.

Your paper must

CRJ 512 Week 6 Final Paper – Criminological Research Paper

Criminological Research Paper

Offenders commit crimes for different reasons. Criminological theories attempt to explain why crimes occur. For the Final Paper, you will evaluate the theoretical study of crime and crime causation by examining the crime of an offender and applying a criminological theory discussing why the offense occurred.

You must discuss both the offender and the crime in detail. Additionally, you must research the criminological theory to be used; discuss the theorist responsible for coining the theory, the year it was created, the premise of the theory, and how it is applicable.

Below is a list of offenders that were reported in the media as a result of the heinous nature of their offense. Select one of the offenders, and research their crime. You may only use scholarly sources when citing in your paper. Wikipedia is not an acceptable source.

First, select an offender from the list of offenders.

Offenders

  • Alex and Derek King (12 and 13 when they killed their father)
  • Andrew Luster (Cosmetic fortune heir who was convicted of drugging, raping, and videotaping assault of young women)
  • Bernard Madoff (perpetrated world’s largest Ponzi scheme, bilking investors of billions of dollars)
  • Charles Cullen (Most prolific serial killer in New Jersey history, killed patients with drugs from the hospital)

  • Michael Devlin (kidnapped and sexually abused two boys while living openly as their “father”)
  • Robert Chambers (nicknamed the “Preppie Murderer,” killed 18-year-old woman in Central Park)
  • Sante Kimes (grifter who, with son, murdered elderly socialite to get townhouse)
  • Seung-Hui Cho (South Korean student who killed 32 people and wounded 17 others at Virginia Tech)
  • Susan Smith (falsely claimed carjacking to cover drowning of her children)
  • Zacarias Moussaoui (would-be 9/11 hijacker now serving life sentence in federal prison)

Then, select one theory from the list.

  • Age-Graded Theory
  • Anomie Theory
  • Arousal Theory
  • Behavioral Theory
  • Biochemical Theory
  • Cognitive Theory
  • Control Balance Theory
  • Critical Criminology
  • Critical Feminist Criminology

  • General Strain Theory
  • Instrumental Theory
  • Integrated Cognitive Antisocial Potential (ICAP) Theory

After you research the criminological theory and the case, your paper must
