ECN 379 - Seminar in the Economics of Crime

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
This course is designed to increase student’s understanding of the determinants and consequences of criminality. We will explore all levels of crime and punishment from societies optimally choosing deterrence mechanisms to prisoners making behavioral decisions while incarcerated. Students should expect to learn a large portion of the literature regarding these issues as well as the econometric tools used in applied micro economics research.

Prerequisite: ECN 280  and ECN 286 , MAT 336 , or STA 336 .
