Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
This course is designed for forensic science students, but will also be taken by criminology students. This course should not be confused with Criminal Law in the Law School.
This course is required of all Master of Forensic Science (MFS) students and Master of Science in the Field of Crime Scene Investigation (MS-CSI) students and will be specifically covered in the Comprehensive Examination.

This course has been previously taught as a Selected Topics course. We wish to cross-list this course in Sociology as a required course in our combined Criminology Masters degree. I was unable to check the cross-linked radio button and make this happen.
