CRM203 Homicide, Investigations & Forensic Science

This course introduces students to the crime of homicide, including the investigation processes and elements of forensic science. Initially, students focus on the key fundamentals of the crime event and develop an understanding through the lens of offenders and victims and experts in the field, including police. Students also learn how various criminal justice systems respond to lethal violence, including the application of forensic science. Using a real life, case study approach, students learn how homicides are detected and investigated by the police; how they are processed in the courts, including the criminal trial process and sentencing; and the management and prison experience of convicted offenders.
