Undergraduate Certificate in Forensic Sciences
Forensic Science is a growing field and offers an excellent point of entry for students interested in combining natural and social scientific method and theory. The goal of this certificate is to use lecture, lab, and field work to prepare students for careers in Anthropology, Biology, Chemistry, or Criminology, with a focus on forensic applications. Interdisciplinary and practical training in forensics offers high-quality employment opportunities in the private sector and in federal, state, and local agencies including law enforcement, The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and state and federal bureaus of investigation. The program offers a flexible path towards completion for students from any department of origin and with any previous level of experience in forensics. Achieving this certificate will give our students an edge in today’s highly competitive labor market while encouraging a positive social contribution and commitment to community.
