Description
Forensic anthropology is a relatively new field that uses physical anthropology, archaeology, and medical-legal investigation procedures to describe and identify human remains. This course will give students a general understanding of forensic anthropology within the broader context of the forensic sciences. Students will gain basic knowledge of the human skeleton, including dentition, will learn methods for description and identification of human remains, and will learn where and how forensic anthropology is practiced.
