ANT* 107: Introduction to Forensic Anthropology

3 Credits
This course provides an introduction to forensic anthropology, a field of study that involves a variety of methods and theories about the human skeletal structure, useful answering medical and legal questions. Forensic anthropologists often work closely with medical examiners, police officers, lawyers, and other specialists to identify human remains, frequently in the cases of homicides or missing persons.  Topics covered in this course include human skeletal biology, taphonomic effects to buried skeletons, positive identification of skeletal remains, identifying ages, sexes, and ancestry of human skeletons, disease and trauma associated with skeletonized individuals, forensic data recovery methods, and ethical concerns associated with the treatment of human remains in a medico-legal context.
