Additional Information

This class introduces students to concepts drawn from criminal and behavioral profiling. Building on the key concepts of tangible evidence and observation, students are interactively lead through sessions to use the methodology of “Why + How = Who”, which was pioneered by John E. Douglas for the FBI Behavioral Unit. Through labs, students view the elements of threats, e.g.Payload, Tactics, Procedures, Goals, Strategies, and Indicators through the lens of this methodology. Finally, students organize and build profiles of intelligence and connect them to adversary identities.
