Students to Study Homicide Investigation in England

Teaneck, N.J. – June 10, 2005 –Fairleigh Dickinson University students are going to pursue the art and science of homicide investigation this summer in a special study abroad program located in England, on the Wroxton campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Back by popular demand, this course of study follows the literary theme of a Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes novel. It will examine the art and science of homicide investigation from a legal, criminological, forensic and operational perspective, and combines academic, cultural, social and experiential learning. James Gallagher, formerly with Scotland Yard and a leading forensic homicide detective, will be leading this course.

From Tuesday, June 14 to Sunday, June 26, in addition to classroom lectures, students will participate in field experiences including visits to the London Metropolitan Police Peel Training Centre, the Old Bailey, the Crime and Torture Museum and the Sherlock Holmes Museum. Time is set aside for absorption of English culture and cuisine, with visits to Banbury, Bath, London, Oxford, and Stratford-Upon-Avon. [more]
