SOC 011 PZ -Criminal Organizations & Gangs

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course offers a comprehensive overview of criminal organizations - such as street gangs, prison gangs, hate groups, outlaw motorcycle gangs, transnational gangs, tagger crews, hackers, and cartels. Materials will cover how these groups formed, which leadership/organizational structures they utilize, and how they operate domestically and internationally. We will focus on the relationships between these organizations, society, media, technologies, and institutions - as well as examine how historical events have impacted gang behaviors and customs. Students will also develop an understanding of the theoretical concepts and anti-gang strategies that are used by academics, mental health professionals and law enforcement officials.
