There was some comment recently about the lack of programs in forensic
anthropology. To anyone interested in getting a master's degree with a
specialization in forensic anthropology, and to potential undergraduates
who play to specialize in forensic science, Wichita State University's
Department of Anthropology offers classes in human osteology and forensic
anthropology. Additional courses, e.g., crime scene investigation and
forensic science, are offered in the Department of Justice Administration.
The forensic anthropology program has lab facilities, significant teaching
collections, and an ongoing research program that cooperates with the
Sedgwick County Regional Forensic Science Center and activitely engages in
forensic anthropological investigations as cases arise. Research projects
involving students at both thte graduate and undergraduate level include
skeletal profile identification (including sex and group affiliation),
stature estimation, skeletonization procedures, micro evolutionary change,
and age effects in historic and recent forensic sample populations. For
