Chico State Forensic Anthropology Program

Our forensic archaeology program gives students a rare opportunity to learn field recovery methods by documenting mock crime scenes that replicate real-life cases. Graduate students working in the Human Identification Lab assist faculty in the recovery of human remains for local and federal agencies.
