    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course! I took this course as part of Syracuse University's SUPA program at my high school. If you're interested in learning about the basics of forensic science, this is the course to take. It was very interesting and I got a lot out of it.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting I learned during the course was how police investigate a crime scene and all the various types of evidence that can be collected from the crime scene.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even though this course really teaches the basics of forensic science, there is a lot of information that is covered. I'd suggest giving yourself time to read the textbook and review everything.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. I would recommend it because I enjoyed the time I spent in the class. We learned about many things that can be applied in the real world.

    Course highlights:

    I had a few highlights in this course. One of my highlights was when we got to watch a live recording of an actual autopsy on someone. Only thing that was hidden was the persons identity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you are somewhat interested in forensic science in general, you will be fine. My advice would be to pay attention in class. If you do this, I can guarantee you will be successful.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was my favorite course I've ever taken. You'll be exposed to various ideas such as ballistics, time of death, affects of drugs and so much more. This course helped me find my major for college and gave me a taste of what to expect in higher up classes as such.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the different negative influences of different drugs (i.e Stimulants, Depressants, Hallucinogens etc.), how to calculate the time of death based upon body temperature and the contributing factors that could lead to that temperature being altered. I also learned about the different parts of the hair in humans and other animals, the different parts of the microscope and so much more. This class opened my eyes to a whole realm of possibilities and I absolutely loved it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work, and pay attention. The course is fast paced but as long as you stay on top of your lab reports and rare textbook work you'll be fine. Take the notes, don't be afraid to ask someone else for theirs if you miss some they're vital to the course.
