CRJS 3010 - Profiling Serial and Mass Murderers♦


(5 cr.) Law enforcement officials characterize serial murder among one of the most abhorrent of all criminal behavior. In this course, students examine the interest in serial and mass murder in popular culture and explore typologies and theories of criminal behavior. They assess and discuss the history and evolution of profiling; roles, goals, and responsibilities of profilers; the use of profiling in criminal investigations; and populations victimized by serial and mass murderers. Students also apply typologies and criminal theories to real-world case scenarios. (Prerequisite(s): CRJS 1001 or PSYC 1002 or PSYC 1003.)
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
