Developmental and Life Course Criminology (3025CCJ)

A number of important crime related phenomena are associated with age and development. At the aggregate level, communities with a relatively high percentage of young people exhibit higher crime rates than those with fewer young people. At the individual level, criminal behavior generally peaks in adolescence and slowly declines thereafter. Theoretical and empirical work in life course and developmental criminology seeks to make sense of these age related patterns. The goal of this course is to familiarize students with age-related crime patterns as well as current theoretical and empirical debates regarding how to best explain these patterns. In addition, the course will ask students to consider the policy implications of this theoretical and empirical work.
