Forensic Studies Program Description
The modified M.S. in Forensic Studies will require students to focus on investigations and a particular area selected from forensic accounting or digital forensics, which will enhance the value of the degree to employers in those professions. The program will continue to be offered in an online accelerated format, permitting students to complete this master's program in as few as eighteen months and without having to come to campus to attend classes. The proposed program is focused more clearly on training in forensic accounting and digital forensics/forensic investigations, the justice system, legal evidence, and professional communications. The program will culminate in a mock trial capstone.
