Forensic Science

Crystal Czarnecki

"I was hired because of the coursework that I had taken at UIU, such as chemical instrumentation and organic chemistry. Because of these classes I was prepared in ways that the competing interviewees were not. I had learned extensively about the instruments that we would be using in the lab and most people have never heard of them."

Forensic science is the application of science to the law. Forensic scientists use scientific methodology to collect and analyze evidence. Forensic science is an applied discipline which requires an extensive background in the natural sciences, coupled with practical laboratory experience.

The forensic science major is a broad-based program with a strong science core which is excellent preparation for students seeking to continue their education at the graduate level. The major in forensic science can be individualized to prepare students for entrance into professional programs at schools of medicine or graduate programs in forensic science, biology, or chemistry.
