The Forensic Science Certificate is a 12-hour concentration under the curriculum title of Criminal Justice Technology/ Forensic Science. The certificate has been specifically designed to provide an interdisciplinary perspective for students interested in careers in forensic science and is open to students of varying curriculums. Students interested in seeking employment in forensic science laboratories upon graduation are encouraged to select biology and chemistry courses to support the Forensic Science Certificate.

The field of forensic science offers a wide range of specialization areas. The area of specialization will determine the level of education required for the position.
