CH 109 - NPS Introduction to Forensic Science

4.00 credits.
(Natural and Physical Science Core Course)
Scientific principles are applied to the analysis of evidence found at a crime scene. Fingerprints, bloodstains, drugs, paint chips, broken glass, and strands of hair are all valuable evidence for solving crimes, but only if they are properly collected and analyzed. This course provides an overview of the field of forensic science and ties in the scientific concepts underlying the various techniques. CH 109 as a stand-alone course will satisfy Natural and Physical Non-Lab Science Core. Fall semester, when offered.
