NTSC 1115 – An Introduction to Forensic Science

(3 credits) 3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab

This course offers students an opportunity to gain an understanding of a variety of forensic techniques, ranging from blood pattern analysis and identification of human remains, to gas chromatography, and DNA ‘fingerprinting’. Hands-on laboratory exercises will reinforce these concepts. Successful students will also gain insight into how the ‘CSI Effect’ has altered the relationship between science and the legal system.
