11th - 12th Grade
    Credit - 1/2
    One Semester
    Prerequisite:  Forensic Science

    Students in Advanced Forensic Science will process more complicated evidence than in the first level course.  When studying arson, students will learn how to determine if a fire was accidental or intentional, what type of accelerant was used and how to identify common motives of arsonists.  When exploring toxicology, students will learn about drugs, poisons and alcohol and how they affect the body.   DNA, how it works and how it is used in the legal system will be addressed.   Additionally, students will learn about eyewitness testimony and polygraphs as they study the criminal mind in forensic psychology.  Cases solved will be complex, involving subtle clues with many twists.  (This course does not qualify for NCAA eligibility.)
