This course introduces the student to the forensic science profession. Forensic scientists work in a laboratory setting, where they apply the principles and techniques of scientific analysis to the study of crime scene or accident scene evidence. Course topics include techniques used for the identification and analysis of body fluids, hair, fibers, latent fingerprints, firearms, documents, and photographs. Laboratory experiments emphasize DNA analysis, chemical techniques, microscopy, and the use of spectroscopic instrumentation.
