SOC 335 Migration and Crime

3 hours 

This course asks what changes take place when a population moves from a rural to an urban area, from one country to another and from a pre-industrial to an industrial society. Theories of the links of migration with crime and entrepreneurship are tested for both past and current immigrant groups. The sub-economies and subcultures that immigrants create are also considered.
