Credit(s): 6
This seminar will examine and analyze sociological theories of delinquent behavior and how society perceives and copes with such behaviors. A cross-cultural analysis of delinquency will include a study of familial trends and peer influence, age factors, gender differences, and the growth of sub-cultural life. Students will learn the socio-political factors of American life which contribute to and work to reduce sub-cultural formations. Modern trends in prevention and treatment will be studied and evaluated. A Life Arts Project is required.  

Only open to students in the B.A. Liberal Arts and Sciences Teach-Out program.
