FORSC 525 Forensic Investigations - Putting It All Together

3 hours


This course examines the various forensic investigatory topics treated during the course of the MFS program, together with expansion of a few topics not examined in detail during the program, all in the context of the forensic investigation of criminal wrongdoing, and in the environment created by the National Research Council report to Congress in 2009. The use of scientific method as such, and as part of the ethical requirements for good investigation, forms the framework for intellectually examining the totality of a crime scene investigation. The course will include expanded topics such as discovery, excavation and examination of human remains.
