Forensic Science

  • Overview

    Do you want to help solve the crimes of the present, past and future? Do you want to know what bones, blood, and ballistics can tell you about how and why someone died? Have you ever thought of what it would be like to work for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Smithsonian, or the United Nations?

    If you are interested in how science can be applied to the legal process, a minor in Forensic Science from William Peace University is right for you.

    The William Peace University Forensic Science minor includes courses from across a variety of disciplines that together will help you to understand how scientific theories and techniques are used in legal and criminal contexts. The required core courses in anthropology, chemistry, and criminal justice will give you a firm grounding in forensics that you can then develop by choosing from courses in such areas as microbiology, archaeology, and abnormal psychology.

    The minor at WPU will be a good complement to a major in criminal justice, anthropology, chemistry, or psychology, and it will help prepare you well for careers in law enforcement and the legal system, or for furthering your studies in the forensic sciences.
