In this course, the students, in small groups, will create and solve a crime of their own choosing. They should bring in as much of their acquired skills and knowledge as possible, including all the basics of crime scene search, analysis, preservation and processing. They should move on to demonstrate more advanced investigative techniques, such as forensic psychology, forensic chemistry, computer forensics, forensic pathology, forensic anthropology, and forensic accounting. The culmination of the course will be the “courtroom” presentation of their evidence, revealing constructions of guilt or innocence.
