This is a course you won’t forget!  We’ll discuss the history and demographics of homicidal children and adolescents; theories and debates about psychosocial, genetic and metaphysical causation; legal issues and debates about punishment; and the homicidal youth character in literature, film and television. We’ll host a variety of speakers including researchers, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges. And we’ll visit 2020, Hamilton County’s medium security Juvenile Court Youth Center, a facility used to house and rehabilitate juvenile offenders. Students with 3.4 GPAs who are not enrolled in the Honors Program should contact Professor Dziech ( to check if there is space for additional participants.
