"SWK 314 DEVIANT BEHAVIOR focuses on the sociological theories of deviant behavior such as strain theory, differential association theory, labeling theory, and phenomenological theory. The behaviors that are primarily examined are murder, rape, robbery, prostitution, homosexuality, mental illness, and drug use. The course focuses on structural conditions in society that potentially play a role in influencing deviant behavior." 3 credit hours
The Catholic University Faculty has already voted to reword the course description while insisting that it will remain faithful to the Catholic teaching on homosexuality that homosexuals are to be treated with respect and dignity, but have a disordered condition.
