Forensic Science is the backbone of the Justice system, drawing conclusive evidence from scientific observation. Forensic Scientists have duties in law and science.

Forensic Science (18)

The Forensic Science Department has three major objectives: (1) to provide a strong interdisciplinary forensic science major within a liberal arts framework for those entering forensic-related jobs in industry or the government or preparing for graduate work; (2) to provide cognate backgrounds in chemistry, biology, math and physics others who may require this major; (3) to provide non-science majors with sufficient background to understand advances in technology and an ability to apply scientific knowledge to

Forensic Science Overview

The Forensic Science program is an interdisciplinary group major consisting of coursework in forensic science, criminal justice, biology, chemistry. No minor is required.

Forensic Biology and Chemistry FSC 240

The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the biological and chemical aspects of forensic science as it applies to criminal investigation and labo¬≠ratory preparation. Part one of this course looks at the instrumentation and chemistry associated with crimes. We will look at how the instrumentation is used, what type of evidence it can process, how to read the results and the properties of the chemical evidence. Part two of this course is an introduction to the basic principles of forensic anthropology. Topics will include study of human skeletal and dental remains, trauma to the human body, facial reconstruction, forensic entomology and botany, hair and fiber analysis, fingerprinting, pathology used in identification, and toxicology.  Laboratory course.

  • Prerequisites: BIO 150; CHM 140; FSC 140 Term: Winter; Fee: yes; offered alternate years

Forensic Biology FSC 385

This course is designed to introduce students to the principles governing the application of biology and biological statistics to solve crimes. Topics include: evidence collection, documentation, examination and preservation; serology; microscopy; analysis of hair, tissue and skeletal remains; entomological evidence; extraction and quantification of human and non-human DNA; generation of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA profiles; statistical analysis of DNA evidence. Laboratory included.

Forensic Chemistry FSC 440

The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the chemical aspects of forensic science as it applies to criminal investigation and laboratory preparation. This course looks at the instrumentation and chemistry associated with crimes. We will look at how the instrumentation is used, what type of evidence it can process, how to read the results and the properties of the chemical evidence. This course will also study the general principles and fundamentals of forensic toxicology, poisons, action, toxicity, postmortem characteristics, samples required for toxicological analysis and methods of collection, methods of preservation and analysis. Chemical, toxicological and pathological characteristics of commonly abused drugs, including the following: ethanol, barbiturates, narcotics, stimulants, and hallucinogens. Details of the methods employed for analysis, such as color test, Chromatography (GC, GLC, HPLC), mass spectrometry (MS), GC-MS. Laboratory course.
