- Build upon this background by taking a series of more advanced science classes;
- Develop an appreciation of issues specific to forensic science through coursework and laboratory based instruction.
Curriculum: The development of the forensic science program’s curricula follows the basic guidelines for curricula in forensic science established by AAFS.
