Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science

Forensic evidence is a critical component of any criminal investigation, particularly in determining guilt or innocence in a court of law. The demand for forensic technicians, specialists, and professionals working in the field of forensic psychology is expected to increase greatly.

The Becker College Forensic Science major requires a keen eye for detail, a strong background in science, and a professional interest in partnering with law enforcement agencies to fight crime. This program will provide students with specific preparation and a solid foundation for continued advanced studies, leading to a successful career in an entry-level forensics position; develop skills and attitudes that will enable them to become proficient in the scientific and technical aspects of forensics; and develop and enhance each student’s general education and broader based criminal justice basis of knowledge.

Two concentrations are available to students in this Forensic Science program: Criminalistics and Forensic Psychology. The Becker College forensic science degree also prepares students for advanced study at the graduate level.
