SOC 365 Crime and Urban Communities (3 credits)

This course attempts an in-depth examination of the topic of urban crime. The course examines the classic and some more recent studies of crime and communities and also focuses on what citizens do to prevent crime and disorder in their neighborhoods. We will also deal with crime and community in Philadelphia concentrating on specific neighborhoods. The course is a combination of lecture, video presentations, discussion and individual project with the readings forming the backbone of the day’s discussion. Criminal Justice elective.
