This is one of three courses that are the core of our new proposed MFS in Friction Ridge Analysis degree.

Rollback: Syllabus must include elements listed at http://academicplanning.gwu.edu/proposing-new-course

Rollback: Syllabus gives "FORS 6215" as a prerequisite, whereas courseleaf request g "science of fingerprints" as recommended background. Which is correct? Also, syllabus does not include the required class schedule with topics(s) to be covered at each meeting.ives

This is a required course for us. Prof Robinson has tried to address all the issues for which the proposal was returned. Some of this information is in his comments section, where he did not find where to enter it above. Weedn
