UVI TO OFFER FORENSIC SCIENCE COURSE NEXT TERM

Dec. 31, 2002 – The University of the Virgin Islands will offer a course entitled Biological Evidence in Forensic Science course during the 2003 spring semester. The course is part of the Police Science and Administration (PSA) major, but is not a PSA requirement, according to a release.
Geared toward criminal justice professionals, it will examine types of biological evidence obtained from a crime scene and analyzed in a laboratory. Topics to be studied include mixed samples and contamination, environmental effects, laboratory accreditation and proficiency testing, and statistical analyses. Types of evidence and their associated relevance to landmark court cases will also be addressed.
The course will be held from 9 to 11:40 a.m. on Saturdays, beginning Jan. 11, 2003. Instructor Diana Freas-Lutz will teach the teleconferenced course from St. Croix but, she said, some sessions will be on St. Thomas so she can interact with those students as well.
Pre-requisites include either Introduction to Law Enforcement (PSA 120), General Biology (BIO 141), or Changes in the Natural World (SCI 200).
Registration for new students will be held on Jan. 8, 2003. Late registration is January 9-10.
For more information about the forensic science course contact Freas-Lutz at 692-4159 or via e-mail at dlutz@uvi.edu.
