Social/Behavioral Science Exploration
Sociologists of the past saw the study of deviance as the study of "nuts, sluts, and perverts." Contemporary sociologists have a more nuanced and critical perspective on the subject. This course is an historical, theoretical, and ultimately, sociological exploration of the field of deviant behavior, describing and analyzing particular forms of socially defined deviant behavior including murder, rape, prostitution, and illegal drug use, among other topics covered.
