This course requires identification, formulation and solution of meaningful scientific problems encountered in forensic science including experimental design and/or theoretical analysis of new and prevailing techniques, theories and hypotheses. Students will present their research. A principal advisor will guide students in shaping their research plan. Students also have the option of a field internship that allows them to integrate theory with hands on experience through independent laboratory work and study at an affiliated crime laboratory. The internship must be performed in an approved agency under the supervision of a faculty member. The student will spend 1-3 week rotations in the major areas of the crime laboratory, such as instrumental analysis, toxicology/drug analysis, DNA analysis, and trace analysis. Prerequisite: FS 446 FS 445 FS 380 . (3)
