College and University Forensic Science Programs—Graduate and Undergraduate
Four years ago, the journal published listings of worldwide educational programs in forensic science and closely related areas [J Forensic Sci 1994;39(2,Mar)]. One of the lists illustrated opportunities for graduate study for those active in the field and desiring further formal education. It could also be useful to individuals with an undergraduate degree in another area but interested in entering the forensic science field. The second list provided information on institutions offering undergraduate programs in forensic science, criminalistics or forensic chemistry. This list was intended to provide a guide of available programs to assist high school or college students initially considering a forensic career. It listed institutions offering undergraduate programs, the program type and points of contact for further information. The graduate list also included information on number of credits for the degree, internship or thesis requirements, areas of specialization, financial assistance, etc. This list encompassed primarily programs at the Master's level with a few options for study toward a doctoral degree.
