Bloodstain Pattern Analysis Course Affirms SU’s Status as Forensics Leader

Posted on: Nov. 26, 2013

A course in bloodstain pattern analysis, offered by The College of Arts and Sciences, has been recently approved by the International Association of Bloodstain Pattern Analysts (IABPA). SU is one of only two institutions in the country—the other is Baylor University in Texas—to offer a course sanctioned by IABPA, which is responsible for promoting the education of all involved with bloodstain pattern analysis.

SU’s course, “Bloodstain Pattern Analysis” (FSC 463/663), is taught by Anita Zannin G’11 in the Forensic and National Security Sciences Institute (FNSSI).

“Successful completion of this course fulfills the minimum guidelines and criteria for provisional membership in the IABPA,” says Zannin, a consultant for the Syracuse-based AZ Forensic Associates. “Membership in professional organizations is critical for anyone wishing to enter or get ahead in forensic science or one of its many allied fields. There are many networking, educational and courtroom benefits.”
