CRJ 355 Corporate, Political Crime and White Collar Crime

3 Credit(s)
This course examines the nature, extent, causes, and consequences of the three types of white-collar crime, or economic crimes that are often committed by those in power including: occupational crime, corporate crime, and political crime. Criminal justice system responses to these crimes will also be examined. Examples of crimes that will be covered include: embezzlement, fraud, money laundering, bribery, environmental crime, and others. Because white-collar crimes often involve the use of computers or other modern technologies, special attention will be given to the overlap between crimes and cybercrime. Three lecture hours per week.
