This advanced course will focus on the attempt to understand the behaviors, actions, and patterns of criminals. Focus areas will include, but are not limited to: repeat offenders (numerous offense-types will be covered); the formation of individual killers’ modus operandi; antisocial personality disorder and its impact on the criminal mind; the differences (and reasons behind them) between mass murder, spree murder, and serial murder; the likelihood of criminal recidivism; and the likelihood of “true” criminal rehabilitation. The course will also look into criminal investigators’ efforts to “read” a crime scene in an effort to further understand the perpetrator’s mind and method(s). Class activities and assignments will include various individual tasks (i.e. - research papers, case studies, presentations), extensive readings, lecture and note-taking sessions, quizzes, exams, and staged crime-scene investigations. This course will provide students with the opportunity to learn more about an interesting subject, as well as opening doors to occupational possibilities.
