Forensics is a one-semester lab-based course focusing on modern criminal and forensic investigation and analysis techniques.  We will focus on applying current scientific methods to the collection, documentation, preservation, examination, and interpretations of physical and biological evidence using modern laboratory techniques and procedures.  It would be impossible to investigate all areas of forensic science in one semester. We will explore a range of fields, topics and techniques to attempt to give a sense of the diverse nature of forensics. Your success in Forensic Science will require patience, an inquiring mind, and use of deductive, scientific reasoning while applying previous biology, chemistry, physical science and math skills.
