Students will spend their time focusing on the ins and outs of behavioral science. Syllabus topics can include the history of the field, advances in mental health and practice, and new theories that are changing the way we look at the brain and each other. Students will participate in research, discussion, lectures and cool readings.

This hands-on course investigates the origins of forensic science and criminology, the impact of modern technology and the breakthroughs that are on the horizon. Oh, yeah – there’s also crime scenes, blood spatter and cases to solve. Topics can include high-profile cases and the role that forensic science and criminology played in their outcomes. Constitutional law through current issues such as decriminalization, voting rights, immigration, copyright law, wrongful convictions, civil rights, euthanasia and other hot topics.
