Forensics I"The evidence never lies..." Gil GrissomCourse description from the MSBSD Program of Studies:
Forensic science is the application of basic biological, chemical and physical science principles and technological practices for the purposes of justice in the study of criminal and civil issues. The course is designed to integrate the core scientific disciplines while giving students both theory and hands-on experience with the skills and knowledge required of a forensic crime scene investigator. This multidisciplinary approach will highlight topics in genetics, anatomy, chemistry, physics, and investigative techniques with supplemental subject matter through case studies, technology and sociology. In addition, the ethical, legal, and social concerns surrounding forensics will be discussed. A strong emphasis will be placed on developing critical thinking skills.
