Massively Open Online Courses

Dr Aaron Sell

Griffith has launched its first two MOOCs (Massively Open Online Courses) through the open2study platform.

Understanding the origins of crime was developed by Dr Aaron Sell from the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice.

Dr Aaron Sell lectures conducts research on anger and aggression from an evolutionary perspective. He received his PhD in evolutionary psychology from the prestigious Center for Evolutionary Psychology at UC Santa Barbara.

Understanding the origins of crime teaches you to understand criminal behaviour by looking at our evolutionary history and animal behaviour in general. Criminologists, like scientists generally, agree that life resulted from a process of natural selection. But most do not use that information when studying what crime is and why it exists. In this subject, you will learn the process of natural selection and how it can be used to make sense of criminal behaviour.

The subject starts on 9 September and finishes on 6 October.
