How to Enroll

An overview of the uses of forensic science in criminal prosecution. For upper level, non-science majors, with priority given to criminal justice students. Will focus on a core of four well-known contemporary murder cases: the prosecutions of O.J. Simpson, Pamela Smart, the Menendez brothers, and Suzanne DAmour. Key forensic evidence used in each case will be identified and discussed, along with the major social issues surrounding the case, including domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and race and community-police relations. A basic understanding of chemistry, biology, and physics may prove helpful, but is not required. Part of the Criminal Justice Studies Certificate.
