Forensic Science on Television will introduce students to the basic chemical and biochemical principles of FORENSIC SCIENCE used on popular science/science fiction television shows. The course will use episodes of CSI,the X-Files and Fringe to study the application of techniques from instrumental chemistry and molecular biology to analyze evidence collected from crime scenes. By using popular television shows to introduce specific techniques students should gain a basic understanding of the capabilities and limitations of forensic science and decide for themselves if television forensic science gets it right.
