Forensic science is a broad, interdisciplinary field in which biological and physical science methods are used to analyze and evaluate physical evidence related to matters of criminal and civil law. The objective of the degree is to provide an appropriate education and scientific background to men and women planning careers as physical evidence examiners in crime laboratories. The curriculum is also appropriate for individuals currently working in forensic science laboratories and is valuable for those in related areas whose professional work requires in-depth knowledge of science and scientific investigation methods. At the end of their first year, students declare a concentration in either Forensic Chemistry or Forensic Biology.
