Forensics

Forensics

This course provides an overview of modern-day forensic science careers at work through the use of science concepts for the collection and analysis of evidence and linking evidence to suspects and crime so as to present evidence that is admissible in a court of law. Modern-day practices of forensic science have originated from the contribution of science, with legal professions seeking ways of studying criminal activities and crime scenes to stop crime. Of particular interest in this course are the various applications of medicine in the forensic science field. The course identifies concepts of science and critical thinking in the field of forensic science. Following the presentation of the concept, students are advised to carry out online research to explore examples and apply the concepts they have just learned. Supplied are links to case studies, interactive learning tools and high-quality research sites. Throughout the course, projects are assigned to allow students to actively apply the information they have just learned. These projects include actual DNA separation, simulated crime-scene investigation, development of a cyber security plan, and the identification of specific forensic skills utilized during the course of a big murder case. The course focuses on assisting students to make career choices. Secondary students who complete the course will have gained an awareness of the career diversity available in the field of forensics. Moreover, attention will be drawn to many similar careers in computer science and medicine. Included in this career overview is the consideration of job availability and descriptions, training and educational requirements, certification and licensing, and typical annual salaries. Students who take this class will be equipped on how to make career choices that are more informed with regards to the medical science and forensic fields. Simultaneously, students will learn the scope and history of present-day forensic science work.

STUDENTS IN THIS COURSE WILL FULFILL THE FOLLOWING OBJECTIVES:

Compare and contrast professions in the field of forensic science in terms of job descriptions, training and educational requirements, certification and licensing, and ethical and legal considerations. Examine forensic science history and the contributions of ballistics, fingerprints, animation, physical evidence and molecular techniques in identifying victims or perpetrators and solving crimes. A great deal of research and related online study is incorporated into this course. Failure to complete the suggested work will put the student at a great disadvantage. It is advisable for students to have successfully completed a secondary-level course in biology and have a good physical science background. An updated computer system with a good firewall and virus and popup protection is highly recommended.
