Title: Forensic Chemistry
Course Section Number: DV1-178-01
Department: Division I
Description: The continued popularity of crime scene analysis dramas and literary whodunits reflect society's fascination with criminal investigation. This introductory survey course in chemistry will focus on the theme of forensic science. Designed for non-science concentrators, this class exploresthe historical and philosophical developments in chemistry, as well as applicationsof chemical principles to criminalistics in the laboratory setting. Topics include the development of the atomic theory of matter, atomic structure, chemical bonding, thermodynamics, the chemistry of life (organic and biochemistry), and forensic analysis. Some elementary mathematics and simple statistics will be required for problem solving in class and lab. Twolectures and one laboratory each week. Partially fulfills the College laboratory science requirement, but cannot be combined with CHE101 or CHE 111 to complete the laboratory science requirement. This course does not satisfy requirements for the chemistry major or minor.
