Student Achievement

Students in the Master of Science in Forensic Science (MSFS) Program contribute to the knowledge base of forensic science and produce research directed at improving the practice of forensic science. Our students demonstrate the integration of knowledge, skills and abilities through independent research and scholarly inquiry. 

An important measure of student achievement is our ability to publish and present original research in the field of forensic science.

Postgraduate Success

The MSFS program began in 2001, and to date, we have graduated over 100 students.

Our graduate success speaks for itself. The majority of our graduates accept employment in DNA, Toxicology, Firearms and Drugs. Almost two-thirds are employed in the public sector, working in government forensic laboratories at the federal, state, county or city level. Others pursue careers in the private sector or in research.
