From properly collecting evidence to preserving and analyzing it, forensic science is an intriguing career where you can apply your love of science to the good of society.
If you pursue a concentration in forensics, you will have the option of choosing one of two tracks.
- Forensic Science I/Laboratory. If you want to work in a crime lab and analyze chemicals, DNA, blood serum and other evidence, this is the track for you.
- Forensic Science II/Investigation. If you prefer more forensic general training and want to work in the field documenting crime scenes, photographing and collecting evidence, this is the path to take.
For this concentration, you must have a double major—one in criminal justice with an emphasis in forensic science and one in chemistry, botany, zoology or microbiology.
