The Master of Science degree in Criminalistics (MSC) is a broad master’s program that will provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to apply analytical and scientific methods to criminal investigation. The curriculum offers exposure to crime scene investigation and evidence techniques, as well as legal issues, expert testimony, trace evidence, physical evidence, crime mapping and current topics within the field of crime scene investigation. It is our goal to take students from the crime scene, to the forensic laboratory, to providing expert testimony in a court of law. The program provides advanced, discipline-specific knowledge for those wishing to enter or advance in the field of Criminal Justice, with emphasis placed on the analytical and scientific methods associated with criminal investigations. Given the flexibility of the program, the graduate degree is easily obtainable for working as well as traditional students who have recently graduated from a 4-year university.
