Infinite Campus/Academic Planner Course Number:
The forensic specialist’s goal is to use all available information to determine the facts, and subsequently, the truth based on the evidence found at the crime scene. This course will define the scope of forensic science and introduce the student to career possibilities in forensic investigations. The enormous range of material challenges the ingenuity of the forensic specialist who examines and identifies hair, fibers, blood, body fluids, stains, alcohol, drugs, paint, glass, soil, flammables, and identifies firearms and compares bullets, tool markings, and foot prints. The class will analyze the role of the investigator through the use of case histories and hands-on experience.
