The central concern of this course is the systematic study of political, religious and ideological violence in its different forms. This course is the study of terrorism; using a criminological or criminal justice framework, focusing on terrorist origins, goals, tactics, ideologies, media implications, counterterrorism methods, and the ramifications on public safety. The course also examines the full continuum of terrorist violence, ranging from small scale violence to mass violence assassinations, terrorism by sub-national and transnational organizations, state terror and international implications.
