Forensic Anthropology

1.5 hours lecture, 1.5 hours lab, 3 credits

This is an introductory course of forensic anthropology, a branch of physical anthropology. Forensic anthropology involves human osteology, and is directed towards identifying human remains for legal purposes. Students will learn to assess through physical remains the sex, stature, and 'age at death' of human specimens, as well as the validity of determining 'genetic heritage'. Students will learn to understand how teeth and bones can give evidence of behaviourial patterns, trauma and disease, and how to assess cause and manner of death, and the effect of a postmortem interval on determining the above.


  • C in one of Provincial English 12, ENG 060, ENG 096, ENG 098, or ESL 090; or assessment.
