This online Sociology of Crime unit provides you with a greater understanding of the ideological dimensions of crime from the 19th century through to the early 21st century.
Offered through Open Universities Australia in partnership with Griffith University, the unit covers the theories of crime with a strong focus on street crime, white-collar crime and domestic violence.
