Forensic Science with AOC in Forensic Biology and Forensic Chemistry Program Description
Stevenson University seeks to add a new Master of Forensic Science degree (M.F.S.) to include two areas of concentration: Forensic Biology and Forensic Chemistry. The proposed degree focuses on the forensic technician and the skills necessary to be successful. The program focuses on the application of the physical, biomedical, and social sciences to the analysis and evaluation of physical evidence. Scientific and technological advances are expected to increase the availability, reliability, and usefulness of objective forensic information used as evidence in trials. As a result, forensic science technicians will be able to provide even greater value than before.
