Why This Program & What You'll Learn
You’ll be trained in both the “what” – specific skills used in forensic labs – and the “whether” – discussions about the social factors and biases behind methods and theories.
This is a novel approach to the forensic science field that is not replicated elsewhere in the state. Through activities in these courses, you’ll practice critical thinking and writing skills as well as learn forensic-specific techniques in psychology and anthropology to use in the work environment.
This program is designed to prepare you for a forensic science career!
- The certificate pairs with any major, allowing you to link specific knowledge in your field of study with value-added forensic science knowledge.
- You will gain applied experience through an internship, co-op, or research experience.
- You will be grounded in the ethical principles required of members of the forensic community.
