Uphold the law with science
If you’re considering pursuing a career in criminal justice or crime labs, studying forensic science is a strategic and solid choice of study. A forensic scientist is a critical component in upholding the law, as scientists can help lawyers, juries, and judges understand test results that may contribute to evidence discovery. As a future forensic scientist, you will perform on-site analysis, gather evidence, and use in-lab and field experience to assist and back your findings.
