Undergraduate Students

Students in the Department of Forensic and Investigative Science can choose which course of study best fits their career interests. The forensic examiner major prepares students for positions as crime scene analysts, latent fingerprint examiners, firearms examiners, forensic photographers, evidence technicians, investigators, and law enforcement. The forensic biology major prepares students for positions in forensic labs as DNA analysts and pathology assistants. The forensic chemistry major prepares students for positions in forensic labs as forensic drug chemists, arson and explosives analysts/investigators, forensic toxicologists, and trace evidence examiners. All majors also provide great preparation for graduate studies or professional programs such as dental, medical, and law school.
