Background and History of Organized Crime

This course will look at the organization and structure of mafia groups using several case studies. Students will use conceptual frameworks and historical background to analyze these organizations’ symbols, activities, rituals, and businesses, in both legal and illegal markets. This course will also look at a list of set policies implemented to control organized crime, and prevent further infiltration into society, and consider the activities of criminal organizations relative to those of legitimate organizations.
Note: Some topics in this class cover a few violent themes pertaining to the history, formation, and business of select organized crime groups.
