ANTH 2220 - Introduction to Forensic Anthropology

3 Credit(s)

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the discipline of forensic anthropology. Forensic anthropology employs methods from biological anthropology, archaeology, and other disciplines to locate, identify, and interpret human remains. While these methods are useful in a variety of contexts, forensic anthropologists often work closely with law enforcement. This course will cover topics such as human decomposition processes, locating and recovering skeletal remains, skeletal anatomy, and interpretation of skeletal remains (e.g. age-sex estimation, height estimation, recognition of disease indicators in the skeleton). (As Needed) [Graded (Standard Letter)]
