Comments on the course

This is a very engaging and insightful class for those with an interest in crime investigation and body analysis. You do not necessarily have to be studying anthropology or forensics to enjoy this class— I'm personally in the health sciences. The most tedious work is the summaries of scientific papers she assigns us, but it is far from unmanageable as Megan gives plenty of time for students to complete them. Plus, she's not a harsh grader. Other than this, all other assignments are straightforward and enough to get good grades on. The exams are a breeze as long as you are engaged in the class and study.

Course Content

The course content is split into three parts (each having its own exam). The first includes explaining the medicolegal system, some history, what forensic anthropologists do, how crime scenes and bodies are generally processed, and more general, introductory things. The second section is more memorization-heavy: major bones of the body, basic osteology, and parts of a biological profile. The third section is more focused on trauma and basic ballistics wounds, with the very end focusing on different careers in the forensic field. When it comes to if this course is useful, it depends on what you're studying, really. If one is interested in being a forensic anthropologist, medical examiner, or another type of forensic scientist, then it's a no-brainer that this class would be useful. Cons...read more

Comments on the professor

Megan is a great professor, she's very charismatic and knows a lot despite not actually being from the forensic anthropology field. She's really nice and accommodating with student needs. Don't have any cons to say.

Advice

She does not post her PowerPoints on Canvas, which is why I selected "attendance heavy." But making friends in the class willing to give their notes or going to Megan's office hours to ask for a review are easy options to take. Ultimately, putting in the effort asked of you for this class will earn you a good grade.
