Forensic Science (B.S.)

Our forensic science major provides you with a solid foundation in both the biology and the chemistry necessary for many forensic investigations along with applications relevant to crime labs. Integrating courses in the sciences with courses in criminal justice, our program emphasizes hands-on laboratory work, critical thinking and data analysis, and effective communication of scientific information. You will be able to apply scientific knowledge and methods and to articulate the connections between the sciences and other fields of knowledge.

You can take advantage of the numerous resources surrounding Trinity: various federal agencies, like the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Secret Service, routinely come to campus to share experiences and give career advice. The Washington, D.C., area is also the home of forensic laboratories for organizations such as the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Postal Service, and the National Institutes of Health.
