The Criminal Justice Forensic Concentration program is designed to train law enforcement personnel to maintain law and order, collect evidence and information, and conduct investigations and surveillance. The program will provide law enforcement officers the necessary skills to conduct routine investigations.
Forensic Science and Criminalistics are emphasized, and particular emphasis is placed on laboratory practices used to develop investigative evidence, including finger print and DNA analysis.
Graduates can go on to careers in such jobs as Forensic Technician, Police Officer, or State Trooper. Some jobs require a four-year degree, but a two-year associate degree is all that is required at many police departments.
