New Advanced Criminalistics: Crime Reconstruction Course added to Program Offerings

Main Content

This course will explore the knowledge and methods relevant to the scientific reconstruction of crime. As a historical science, crime reconstruction will be compared and contrasted with experimental science and the utilization of the scientific method. Philosophical topics will include scientific inductivism and falsificationism, the two primary methods used to evaluate hypotheses, and other epistemological approaches to the pursuit of knowledge and truth. A significant portion of the course will be devoted to the knowledge and techniques necessary to identify and sequence discrete events that comprise incidents including the analysis of blood deposits, firearm evidence including ballistics, and other material and physical traces.
