Set the
standard.

With research-active faculty, a student-centric philosophy, a contemporary curriculum, world-class equipment, and superior facilities, students in Forensic and Investigative Science receive a unique scientific and hands-on learning experience. 

Leading the Way

With a new Ph.D. program in forensic science effective July 1, 2016, WVU becomes the only institution in the country to offer bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in forensic science.

#studentsFIRST

Our #studentsFIRST program is designed to help our first and second year students become successful in their transition to college.

As students are formally admitted to the major for their junior year, we change the emphasis of their last two years to a focus on preparation for graduate school or a career.

Forensic Science Summer Camp

Are you a middle or high school student interested in forensic science?

Forensic Science Summer Camp is for you!

Through hands-on, experiential learning, participants will acquire the practical knowledge and skills that forensic scientists employ in their day-to-day casework. At the conclusion of the week, participants will take their newly acquired knowledge and skills and apply them to a mock crime scene at the WVU Crime Scene Complex.
