About this course:

According to the FBI, mass shootings have tripled in frequency in recent years. In the last four decades, more than three quarters of the guns used by killers were obtained legally, and more than half of the cases took place at a school or workplace. In this course, we explore the psychological characteristics of shooters, as well as gun rights, the legal system, and law enforcement response. We highlight the seminal Columbine school shooting, as well as the Virginia Tech and Santa Barbara shootings.
