Teaching Ethics in a Forensic Science Curriculum
Higher education programs in forensic science seldom devote attention to issues of professional ethics in their curricula. This paper describes the results of a pilot study inquiring into the attitudes of undergraduate students before and after exposure to forensic science ethical standards and problems. Recommendations are offered concerning those terms and concepts with which students should be familiar and the skills they need to acquire.
