Introduction to Forensic Science Laboratory


This laboratory component will provide investigations and techniques used in basic forensic science. Technology, procedures, and the limitations of the modern crime laboratory will be examined by simulating crime scene investigations. Experimental methods and analysis of data will introduce the student to the unique ways in which a forensic scientist must think and reveal the pure science that forms the basis for forensic science. Instrumentation and techniques in basic forensic science will be employed to analyze known and unknown physical and biological evidence. Basic forensic anthropology will also be discussed when identifying unknown skeletal remains. Mock crime scenes will be used as a method of assessment.
