CJ 443 Advanced Forensic Anthropology

Forensic anthropology is the application of the techniques of biological anthropology to human skeletal remains of forensic significance. In this course we delve deeper into the methods used in forensic anthropology, and the biological, historical, and methodological theory behind their development. Students will gain practical hands-on experience working with human skeletal materials through analysis and present their findings. Topics may vary but include the history of forensic anthropology as a discipline, forensic search and recovery, taphonomy, and further estimation of age, sex, stature, and ancestry from skeletal remains.
