MARQUETTE - Northern Michigan University will offer a course entitled Domestic and International Terrorism as part of Summer College 2002.

Greg Warchol, a criminal justice professor at NMU, will spend a considerable amount of time exploring the history and motivations behind the recent attacks against the U.S. last September and the ongoing crisis in the Middle East. He will also discuss the nature of domestic and international terrorism, the individuals and organizations involved, and their motivations, rationales and choice of targets.

Warchol will examine European, Latin American, Asian and Middle Eastern terrorism, along with violent cults operating in the U.S. and abroad. Finally, he will address anti- and counter-terrorism strategies and the prospects for the future.

The four-credit course will meet from 12:30-4:50 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 25-Aug. 8. For more information, call the criminal justice department at 227-2660. To register, call 227-1221.
