TCT 637 Terrorism and Society

Terrorism does not emerge from, nor does it exist in, a vacuum. This course examines the various societal conflicts and dynamics that contribute to the rise, and continuing growth, of terrorism, as well as some of the psychological factors that may contribute to the development of individual terrorists. This course will further examine the effects that terrorism has on societies and how societies have learned to adapt to, and cope with, this ever-spreading form of political, religious, and social violence.
