  APPLIED CRIMINOLOGY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2011-12

La Criminología Aplicada busca una comprensión profunda de la naturaleza, el alcance y las causas de la delincuencia y las nuevas formas de criminalidad, así como de los métodos utilizados para detectar, contrarrestar y controlar el comportamiento criminal. Pone énfasis en la aplicación de las teorías y enfoques criminológicos a los problemas de la delincuencia y su impacto en la comunidad social y el sistema de justicia penal.  

La asignatura Criminología Aplicada, por tanto tiene como propósito fundamental mostrar a los estudiantes el conocimiento empírico y los aspectos aplicados de la Criminología más actual. Para ello se describen y analizan los principales resultados y conclusiones de la investigación criminológica aplicada al estudio e intervención con delincuentes y víctimas, y se indica cómo pueden ayudar estos conocimientos al desarrollo de políticas criminales preventivas cada vez más eficaces, y sobre todo, a como se puede conseguir una actuación del criminólogo cada vez más especializada y adaptada a las nuevas demandas de la sociedad.
