This course provides an accelerated introduction to terrorism by exploring the circumstances that promote terrorism and terrorist activity. Special emphasis is given to social extremists, including efforts to manipulate such marginalized groups by sponsors of terrorism, and their rationalizations for terrorist behaviors. Case studies from throughout history are used to give students an exposure to the diversity of identities and motivations that give rise to terrorism. This course is designed for upper level students who need an expository class on terrorism and not those who have studied it at the undergraduate level.
