FS101 Fundamental Concepts in Forensic Science does not have a required textbook, and there is no required reading other than the material posted in the class itself. However, we recommend the following books as supplementary reading material for the interested student:

  1. Criminalistics: An Introduction to Forensic Science, by Richard Saferstein. This is a good general reference for anyone with an interest in forensic science. It contains technical material. It is particularly appropriate for those interested in switching careers and for beginning students of forensic science.

  2. Crime Lab: A Guide for Non-scientists, by John Houde. This is a good selection for those who are interested in the more general aspects of forensic science, but who are not particularly interested in the technical details. It features many beautiful and informative photographs. It is particularly appropriate for mystery and crime writers.

  3. Principles and Practice of Criminalistics: The Profession of Forensic Science by Keith Inman and Norah Rudin. This book presents a conceptual and philosophical framework for forensic science. It contains very little technical discussion per se, but presumes a familiarity with forensic laboratory analyses and procedures. It is appropriate for practicing forensic scientists and advanced students of forensic science. It would also be appropriate for anyone who is interested in a bird's eye view of the evolution of forensic science and the current state of the practice.
 
 

No specific text is required for FS 207 An Introduction to Forensic Nursing Concepts. The student will be expected to read the posted course material and respond on a weekly basis. However, for more information about the role of the sexual assault nurse examiner, students may wish to obtain Sexual Assault: The Medical-Legal Examination, by Sharon R. Crowley.

 
 

There is no required textbook for CP250 Introduction to Stalking Concepts. Instead, cases and online lecture notes will be provided.
