Forensic Science

A Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science is the application of scientific principles and methods to assist criminal and civil investigations and litigation.


The Forensic Science undergraduate major is an interdisciplinary major that draws from knowledge and expertise from multiple academic units that are relevant to forensic science. The major provides students with a strong background in the biological, physical, and social sciences as the foundation of forensic science, crime scene investigation, and evidence collection and preservation. Students are educated on the role of forensic scientists in the criminal justice system and how scientific evidence can be used in that system.
