What You’ll Learn

Forensic Science today is not what it was even 10 years ago. The forensic specialty areas are developing and adapting to the 21st century world at a rapid rate. Students will learn that almost any scientific discipline can be included in forensic investigations. However, the "science" must be valid and reliable in order for a court to hear it.

Forensic Science is where pure science meets the "real world" — we apply our scientific methods and techniques to solve questions of responsibility, guilt and innocence.
