ANSC 210 - Introduction to Forensic Anthropology

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Three hours lecture.
Prerequisites: ANSC 101  or permission of instructor.
Cross-Listed: FOSC 210 

Serves as an introduction to the field of forensic anthropology, the identification and analysis of human remains in a legal context. It includes a brief study of the major bones of the human body, their growth, development, variation, and initial treatment and examination. Through lectures, readings, and discussions, emphasis is placed on the major methods and techniques forensic anthropologists use to identify unknown human remains for law enforcement, including preliminary discussions of determination of age, sex, ancestry, and stature from the human skeleton. It also includes discussions of determination of time since death (or postmortem interval), manner of death, as well as differentiating antemortem, perimortem, and postmortem trauma. The role of the forensic anthropologist in mass disasters and human rights abuse cases is also considered.

Note(s): Students cannot receive credit for both ANTH 230 AND ANSC 210.
