Forensics

The Forensics emphasis is designed to provide learners with an understanding of the nature of criminal evidence and the forensic investigative process in relation to a criminal or civil investigation. A combination of both theory and practice in the emphasis serve as a foundation to prepare the learner for work in the forensics field.

Graduates may work for federal, state, and local governments; international organizations; public and private laboratories; medical examiners offices; hospitals; universities; police departments; or as independent forensic science consultants.
