SINC 161 - Forensic Science I


Credit(s): 3
3 hours lecture, 3 hours contact
This is the first in a two-semester sequence of interdisciplinary science courses that apply the principles of physics, chemistry, and biology to the forensic analysis of evidence. This course is taught in three modules, focused respectively on physical, chemical, and biological analysis of evidence. Topics include impact and injury, ballistic trajectories and blood spatter, death and decomposition, and drugs and toxicology. Laboratory activities exploring the scientific analysis of forensic evidence will be integrated within the modules.
