The Bachelor of Science degree in Forensic Science is a four-year program with two concentrations: Forensic Chemistry and Forensic Biology. The development of a Forensic Science degree program is interdisciplinary and relies strongly on the incorporation of courses in the College of Science and Technology and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. Forensic Science spans a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines including chemistry, biology, odontology, pathology, criminalistics, engineering, psychiatry, toxicology, computer science and behavioral sciences, to mention a few. This program is designed to produce well-informed graduates with the option to further their scientific interests in graduate school as well as pursue a career in law enforcement. The major tracks are summarized below:
Forensic Biology - Prepare students for positions in local, state, federal and private forensic science laboratories as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) analysts or applicable biological science. This concentration will also prepare students for graduate work in Forensic Science or Biology disciplines.
