CRM 008 - (IS) White Collar Crime

Semester Hours: 3
Using real case studies and a critical lens, this course explores the definitions, theorized causes, impact, and documented effects of white-collar crime. What is it about this subject that justifies a distinct focus from the study of other crimes? What does the fact that white-collar crime is its own subject within the broader context of criminology says about our society? Who commits white-collar crimes? Are they fairly punished? These are just some of the topics we will cover throughout our time together. This course will utilize different course materials, including podcasts, TED talks, textbook readings, and oral arguments, to answer these important questions. The goal is to study white-collar crime in an interactive, thought-provoking way by examining its practical impact on our world and challenging our own views and biases about the subject matter.
