Forensic Science Minor

Scientific Investigation

Forensic science involves the application of science to the legal system. Graduates with knowledge in forensic fields are increasingly in demand. The goal of the forensic studies minor is to provide an introduction to some fields of study with forensic applications. You will learn how to gather and analyze information about the past using the scientific method. Whether you’re interested in law enforcement, archaeology, history, biology, geology, or astronomy, learning to scientifically analyze data will boost your skill set no matter what career you plan to pursue.

Get Involved!

Chances are, the organization you choose to participate in will include a diverse group of people — you’ll be faced with the same situation in the working world! Learning how different people respond and react to certain situations will help you develop your skills in presenting and implementing ideas.

Learn How to Work with a Team!

Knowing how to work well with a team is an essential skill for any career. Being in a student organization teaches you how to do this by putting you in situations where you are required to take advice from others, as well as give your own. You have several opportunities to become an active member or leader of one of our biology organizations.
