Model Standards for Forensic Science Graduate Program Evaluation
We recently had occasion to serve on a national Technical Working Group on forensic science education and training. During that same time, we acted as invited consultants to provide an external evaluation of one of the forensic science graduate programs. These experiences, along with the recent discussions in the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and the Council on Forensic Science Education about possible educational program accreditation, prompted us to formulate the compilation of standards presented here.
