Explore the scope of professional careers, examine specialties that make up forensic teams, and identify personal interests that will sustain you as you navigate through more advanced studies.
If you are interested in a career involving police and medical investigation of crime scenes and criminal acts, as well as the laboratory assessment of materials associated with such investigations, Bryant's Forensic Science program may be for you.
Forensic techniques can be used in relation to crime or civil actions – from tracking industrial responsibility for toxic spills to assessing the cause of a bridge or building collapse. The program design allows College of Business students to use the concentration to meet the requirement for a minor in the College of Arts and Sciences.
The design of the Forensic Science concentration is based on standards set forth for a B.S. degree in Forensic Science by the Council of Forensic Science Educators (COFSE), and certification requirements described by the American Academy of Forensic Science (AAFS).
The Forensic Science concentration will enable you to explore the scope of professional careers, examine specialties that make up forensic teams, and identify personal interests that will sustain you as you navigate through more advanced studies.
You will be prepared for post-graduate study in areas such as trauma assessment, forensic photography, ballistics, medical entomology, soil and chemical analysis, biochemistry, geographical information systems (GIS) and mapping, bioimaging, DNA analysis, pharmaceutical science, or medical studies.
Internship opportunities to apply technical expertise will be available, along with the opportunity for special skills training or certification.
