Forensic and Investigative Science
The Department of Forensic and Investigative Science has introduced three new majors focusing on key aspects of the forensic science discipline.
As of fall 2019, these majors replace the original Forensic and Investigative Science major. While much of the first-year curriculum is the same, each major has a distinct focus and career outcomes:
- The Forensic Examiner major prepares students for field work including crime scene analysis and other related fields.
- The Forensic Biology major trains students to work in a lab setting with DNA or toward careers in pathology and medicine.
- Forensic Chemistry focuses on toxicology, arson and explosives, and other ways chemical analysis can assist in the processing, analysis, and evaluation of evidence.
