This course is an upper division, undergraduate elective in the political science department and is part of the International Relations subfield. Taught every fourth semester, the fifteen week class attracts majors and non-majors usually ranging from sophomores to seniors. From a multidisciplinary perspective, the course introduces students to current scholarly literature on terrorism and explores the complexity of the topic by looking more closely at a variety of areas of research including: the causes and consequences of terrorism, networks of terrorism, the social construction of terrorism, state terrorism, and the experience of becoming a terrorist. We also watch films that help illustrate certain points, concepts, and examples.
