As a forensic biology major, you’ll immerse yourself in biology, physics, chemistry, math and forensic courses. Our program emphasizes hands-on learning, so you’ll spend a lot of time in the lab and in the field. These experiences will teach you how to work on teams, communicate, problem-solve and think critically which are skills that are in demand in forensic biology laboratories.
Large institutions just can’t provide the individualized attention and opportunity you’ll find here. Our forensic biology majors examine human cadavers and work with cutting-edge crime lab equipment. They assist professors with research, attend national conferences and intern at forensic labs. They star on our sports teams, participate in music ensembles and lead student organizations.
Here, you won’t get lost in the crowd. You’ll be a part of a close-knit family. You’ll enjoy small class sizes and build lifelong friendships with your classmates. Our dedicated professors will get to know you. They will support you in your coursework, co-ops or internships, and career preparations such as job, professional and graduate school applications. They will become personally invested in your success and open doors for you.
Upon graduation, you’ll have the scientific knowledge, skills and experience to examine and test physical evidence to help exonerate the innocent and aid in the prosecution to build a solid scientific forensic case to present to the judge or the jury.
