This class focuses on the typology of crime, patterns and motives of crime, profiles, and the psychological make-up of those who engage in illegal activities. You will be exposed to the inner-workings of the criminal mind, the motivating factors that lead people to commit criminal acts, and the methods these criminals use to plan and execute crimes.
