CHEM - 105. Criminalistics


4 credit(s)
Criminalistics is a branch of forensic science that involves the recognition, identification, individualization, evaluation, and reconstruction of “physical evidence”. The purpose of this one-semester, laboratory-based course is to acquaint the student with the philosophy and methodology of dealing with physical evidence in a general way. No attempt will be made to provide the student with all of the techniques needed to know to work in a forensic science laboratory. Instead, the general approach is designed to give the student a sound, fundamental base upon which to build. The laboratory aspect of the course will consist mainly of work on unknowns designed to simulate physical evidence problems and to stimulate thinking about them. Select pieces of SAInT Center instrumentation will be introduced. The lecture part of the course will provide much of the theoretical knowledge required to complete the exercises. There are no prerequisites, but it is suggested that the student be familiar with high school mathematics (algebra, geometry and trigonometry).
