This essay contains two parts, and is worth 5 points. Please make sure you answer both parts. In order to complete this essay, first choose two among the following criminological theories: Choice Theory, Trait Theory, Social Structure Theory, Social Process Theory, Strain Theory, Critical Theory, and Developmental Theory.
Part I: In approximately one paragraph per theory, identify the following characteristics of each of the criminological theories you’ve chosen: Its origin, major theorist(s), time period, its major premise, any subtheories related to it, and the key ideas associated with it.
Part II: Now identify a particular type of crime or criminal act (ie., rape, burglary, murder, robbery, shoplifting, terrorism, white collar crime, etc.) and apply each theory that you’ve chosen to that crime. Explain and discuss whether or not the theory adequately explains this type of crime. If you believe it does, defend your reasoning. If you believe it does not, thoroughly explain why it does not.
