Why study forensic science?
If you’ve ever wanted to help solve crimes and other puzzles through scientific means, forensic science is the right program for you. Forensic science is the application of scientific methods and processes to matters that involve crime or the public.
People who work in forensic science solve scientific puzzles, testify as experts in court, and even sometimes help collect evidence at crime scenes. You could work in crime scene investigation, ballistics, forensic pathology, and more.
Even better, forensics experts are in demand, all over the country, in both law enforcement agencies and private labs. In fact the field is expected to grow by 14 percent by 2028.
