ANTH 3540 Forensic Osteology

This course is designed to present the application of physical anthropology to forensic science. Forensic anthropologists mostly deal with skeletal and dental evidence, therefore a significant amount of the course deals with the normal growth and development of these tissues, along with how they are modified in life and postmortem. The material covered should be of interest not only to students enrolled in anthropology (including archeology) but also in biology, criminal justice, nursing or any other field in which knowledge of skeletal biology may be required. Course offered Spring Semester only.
