Course Description

Fire, mass disasters, murder and missing persons are all contexts in which human remains are found and require the expertise of the forensic anthropologist. The skeleton retains valuable evidence that can be revealed through careful scientific examination. Learn how a forensic anthropologist, through the analysis of skeletal remains, determines the sex, age, race, height, personal habits, lifestyles and sometimes, cause of death. We will unravel the mysteries of forensics, and how forensic information is used in solving crimes.
