Course No: 84.102-032; ISIS Class Nbr: 14715

Course Description

This course presents the inherently fascinating topics of crime and criminal investigations as a pathway for teaching the fundamental chemical concepts most often covered in an introductory non-majors course. This course capitalizes on the surge of interest in the scientific investigation of crime (as sparked by CSI and other television shows) and will collate the theme of forensic science with the fundamentals of chemistry. The course material will be continually updated with each offering.
