    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone going into criminal justice because anyone that may be working with crimes should know the basics of forensics to help ensure that a crime scene is not contaminated and evidence is collected properly.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how different evidence is collected, different drugs and their schedules, who does what in an investigation, how samples are taken and how to properly secure a crime scene.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate. There is a lot of work and reading involved and do all of it and do not skimp.

    The highlights of this course were definitely working through DNA. Throughout the course, you will​ probably see yourself talking and studying a lot about DNA.

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is strongly based on participation. As long as you complete all 8 courses over a 3-day​ span you will do okay.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For anyone in the criminal justice field this course is amazing. I originally took it as an elective out of curiosity, having seen all the forensics shows on television. I was amazed at how much I learned about not just the science of forensics, but the best way to conduct a search and that there are several different methods to employ when searching. I would recommend this to anyone going into criminal justice in any way. What you learn in the class can help, no matter what your career goals.

    Course highlights:

    Learning different techniques for searching Learning about how to handle trace evidence The importance of keeping the chain of custody and how to prevent cross contamination of evidence which can totally destroy a case.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Leave everything you have seen on television and movies at the door and approach this class with a clean slate perspective.
