This is a course you won’t forget!  We’ll discuss the history and demographics of homicidal children and adolescents; theories about psychosocial, genetic and metaphysical causation; legal issues and debates about punishment; and homicidal young people in literature, film and television. We’ll host a variety of speakers including a prosecutor, defense attorney, judge and maybe a person who has served time in prison. We’ll visit 2020, Hamilton County’s medium security Juvenile Court Youth Center, where juvenile offenders are housed and rehabilitated. Students with 3.2 GPAs who are not enrolled in the Honors Program should contact Professors Dziech ( or Bourke ( to see if there is space.
