Forensic Biochemistry Major

This major prepares students for a career in the field of forensic science. It provides the science background required for working as a forensic investigator in a crime lab. In addition, it prepares students for entry into a graduate program in forensic science. The forensic biochemistry curriculum includes courses from multiple departments and is the credit-hour equivalent of a major plus a minor, therefore no additional minor is required.

Only those chemistry courses passed with a grade of “C-” or better apply to the forensic biochemistry major.
