The Forensics degree consists of a Forensic Science major that includes forensic science, biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, and courses that prepare students for graduate school and/or employment in scientific laboratories. In addition, an emphasis in biotechnology is available. Candidates for the degree must complete the General Studies requirements. Students completing the requirements for the Forensic Science major will automatically earn a minor in chemistry.
A Forensic Science degree is ideal for immediate employment or advanced study. Combining a Forensic Science degree with degrees in chemistry, biology, math, business, foreign languages or psychology makes graduates highly marketable.
Forensic Science majors will be proficient in problem solving, legal analysis and application, quantitative reasoning, investigation, and scientific laboratory procedures.
