The course is designed to have the student understand working definitions of the terms terrorism and religion and how these are applied by groups using said terms for personal and group agendas often through violent means. The course further seeks to examine the various interpretations of religion within the major faiths and delve into perceived justifications for the use of terror. It will provide students with examples of organizations and terror groups that have and continue to employ religion as the basis for terrorist action through case study and determine the means for countering religious ideology as a pretext for violence.
