The Forensic Anthropology Field School is an in-depth course covering all aspects of forensic investigation. Over the course of three weeks participants are taught excavation, documentation and analysis techniques, as well as techniques for legally presenting results. The field school combines applied field techniques, guest lectures from experts in the field, and lab analysis. Students will work through the mystery of identifying the recreated crime scenes in an effort to identify a missing person whose profile is drawn from a real missing personís case.
This course challenges students at the highest level of understanding and analysis exposing them daily to cutting edge science in the related fields. From cadaver dogs to ballistics to trace and blood spatter analysis to the final presentation and cross-examination of evidence in a court of law, students experience the real side of Forensic Science.
Students will have the opportunity to network with forensic science professionals, visit the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (OH state crime lab), visit the Franklin County Coroner's Office, and gain hands-on experience practicing multiple forensic science specialties.
