This course examines the concept of the �Criminal career� By examining the scholarly progression through which this term has evolved. We will investigate three main venues: (1) the research that originated in the early 1900's at the University of Chicago (Shaw and Sutherland); (2) the work of the Gluecks between 1930 and 1957; and (3) the two Philadelphia Birth Cohort Studies. These three research venues are largely responsible for the origin and sustenance of the criminal career paradigm in criminology.

Pre/Co-Requisites: Pre-req; CRIM 602 Nature & Extent of Crime & Criminals, and CRIM 603 Gender, Race, and Crime.
