Discover life as a forensic anthropologist, crime specialist and analyst. Work with law enforcement special agents, forensic anthropologists and forensic specialists to learn the method and process for answering the hidden reasons behind an individual's unnatural death. Meet professional intelligence analysts and discover careers paths in this exciting field. Students enroll in APY 100 and APY 200.
Students will go into the field to gain an introductory understanding about forensic investigation of a crime scene. Forensic investigation is the process of examination and identification surrounding a death from unnatural causes by law enforcement. Forensic investigation is accomplished through the knowledge of approaching a crime scene, gathering evidence, and analyzing all aspects of a crime scene.
Join forensic firearm and fingerprint specialists to analyze “instruments of death and destruction” that caused the demise of the individual and uncover latent prints left at the crime scene establishing the identity of the perpetrator. Search the hidden secrets employed by forensic behavioral analysts who assist criminal investigations to provide behavioral assessments of unknown offenders, threat analyses, interviews, prosecutorial and trial strategies and ultimately expert testimony.
Participate in the investigative technology available to law enforcement such as digital and cyber forensics by extracting information and data from computers, the Internet and following an individual’s digital footprint for the evidence essential in prosecuting cyber-crime. As our society has grown more complex, it has become more dependent on rules of law to regulate investigative activities. You will observe this first hand as we spend a day in a criminal courtroom. This course will take you from a crime scene to the courtroom.
