Forensic Science is any science that is used for the purposes of criminal or civil laws. Forensic Science is currently used worldwide to aid in the resolution of civil disputes, the enforcement of criminal laws and/or regulations, and to help protect public health. Forensic Science is truly a comprehensive Science, as it combines the principles of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Environmental Science, Anatomy / Physiology, and other sciences. The main focus of this course is for students to learn the basics of multiple science disciplines, as well as law principles, that together comprise the field of Forensic Science. Students enrolled in the course will engage in lectures, labs, case studies, online activities, and professional visits.
