There is great concern within the law enforcement community and the American public regarding violent crime. An extreme form of the violent offender is the multiple murderer, a term that includes the serial killer, the mass murderer, and the spree killer. This course will investigate these types of killers from an academic viewpoint. The types and subtypes of offenders will be examined, as well as the nature of their crime, the reasons for their crimes, and law enforcement efforts (such as psychological profiling) to stop them. This course counts as an elective for the CJS minor.
