Urgent: Register for Forensic Science for Fall 2018.

Hi everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your break after a busy semester. We would like to let you all know that the Chemistry & Physics program will be offering an exciting course “Introduction to Forensic Science” next semester (Fall 2018).  This course is open to all students at Gallaudet.  No pre-requisites are required for this course.  We need students to enroll to this course as soon as possible. See details below:

Course Title: Introduction to Forensic Science

Course Number: CHE 250 (also counts for GSR 230).

Credits: 4 Credits

Prerequisites: No prerequisites required.

Course Description:  This course is a hands-on, combination lecture and laboratory course. During this course, you will learn the methods used within the forensic laboratories. In addition to learning the principles of this field, the course is designed to facilitate independent thinking, logical reasoning, unbiased evaluation and self-expression with regards to forensic science. This class uses a theme or cluster approach to teaching the methods used in forensic studies.  By working as individuals as well as with groups, the student will learn to do basic experimentation in various areas/topics, and to collaborate with others evidence collection and analysis, crime scene investigation, fingerprinting, etc.  Students will participate in group discussions, electronic communications and individual presentations. Finally, students will learn not only through attending lectures and reading the text but through the use of outside literature, article reviews, newspapers, multimedia and video. To a certain extent the students design their assignments in order to gain more application to their specific areas of interests.

Wikipedia Definition: Forensic science is the application of science to criminal and civil laws, mainly—on the criminal side—during criminal investigation, as governed by the legal standards of admissible evidence and criminal procedure. Forensic scientists collect, preserve, and analyze scientific evidence during the course of an investigation. While some forensic scientists travel to the scene of the crime to collect the evidence themselves, others occupy.

If you are interested, register as soon as possible before the class fills up. Also, send an email to Dr. Paul Sabila at
