Forensic Science I

bc continuing education

Traumatic injury is recognized world-wide as a major public health problem. Each culture may present its own unique drama in types of crime, weapons, and drugs; and no age, race, religion, or socioeconomic group is spared the devastating effects. These traumas produce both physical and emotional aftermath for the victim, family, and community. Forensic science concepts play a critical role in analyzing crime scene evidence.

This course draws on scientific principles and examines cases where there has been a death, including suicide, accidental death, and murder. In addition, cases in which there is a survivor are discussed with regard to legal and ethical components. Specifically, the course applies a case-method format to forensic science issues, including forensic pathology, clinical forensics, crime victims, computer crime, and equivocal death.
