Forensic Science (B.S.)


Forensic Science Students use microscopes to gather data in lab Our forensic science major provides students 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. Our students can apply scientific knowledge and methods as well as articulate the connections between the sciences and other fields of knowledge.

Our majors build and hone the skills needed for employment at forensic science and public health laboratories. Our majors are also prepared to pursue graduate studies in forensic science and related fields.
