PSYC 320 - Sex Crimes: Victimization and Sex Offender


(3 hours) Prerequisites: PSYC 110. This course will examine the topic of sex crimes committed by different types of offenders and the challenges faced by their victims. The relationship of sex crime victimization to other principal social institutions and the criminal justice system will be explored. Acknowledgment of these relationships with economic, social, legal, and political events will be presented in a historical manner exposing the influences of theories of sexual predators. The currently high rate of sex crimes committed in America indicates that employees in our criminal justice system, psychology, and social agencies need more education on the subject. Sexual criminal offenses involving children, human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and sexual harassment will also be discussed in this class. Cross list CRIM 320 and SOCI 320. Parent=CRIM 320.
