Forensic Science


NOTE: UIU is no longer accepting new students into this minor.

The forensic science minor is intended for persons in fields for whom a basic knowledge of forensic techniques and the science on which they are based would be beneficial.

Choosing a minor field of study is optional. A minimum of 15 semester hours of separate identifiable semester credits must be earned for each minor that is declared. The same course may not be used in a major and a minor or among multiple minors unless the course is a required course (not part of a “select” area) in both the major and the minor or among multiple minors.


  • CHEM 102 Introduction to Forensic Science (3 credits)
  • CHEM 103 Introduction to Forensic Science Laboratory (1 credit)
  • CJ 362 Criminal Investigations (3 credits)
  • CJ 367 Ethics in Criminal Justice (3 credits)


  • Any other CHEM or BIO courses from the Forensic Science major core or elective lists (14-16 credits), but no more than 8 credits may be taken at the 100-level.
