No other training or education besides a high school diploma is usually necessary, though the student will benefit from strong skills in high school-level sciences. In addition to general education requirements, students should expect substantial coursework in biology and chemistry, with additional topics in criminal investigation, forensic biology, forensic human pathology and DNA analysis, physical and trace evidence, criminal justice, latent prints, toxicology, and serology.

Students often pursue a Bachelor in Forensic Science to make a difference in their communities, helping to solve crimes and bring those responsible to justice. Skill sets taught include research, data analysis, and critical thinking, which can be used in a variety of applications both on and off the job.

The amount you should expect to pay for earning a bachelor’s in forensic science has several variables. You should ask any school you are interested in attending for an exact breakdown of all tuition and fees prior to enrollment.

Graduates of a Bachelor in Forensic Science program are prepared for a variety of entry-level positions in the field. Examples of careers may include positions within both public or private forensic science and conventional laboratories.
