CRIMINOLOGY
is the scientific study of the nature, extent, management, causes, control, consequences,
and prevention of criminal behavior, both on the individual and social levels. Criminology is
an interdisciplinary field in both the behavioral and social sciences, drawing especially upon
the research of sociologists, psychologists, philosophers, psychiatrists, social
anthropologists, as well as scholars of law.
The term criminology was coined in 1885 by Italian law professor Raffaele Garofalo as
criminologia. Later, French anthropologist Paul Topinard used the analogous French term
criminologie.
