CJUS 210 - Victimology


Community Corrections

Total Credits = 3
Lecture = 3

The study of crime victims is a relatively new discipline. The focus of the majority of criminology research and discussion has been on the offender, rather than the victim. This course provides an overview of the principles and concepts of victimology, an analysis of victimization trends, and the role of the victim in the justice system. In addition, the repercussions of victimization, victim reporting patterns, and remedies available for victims are also explored.
