Forensic Science is specially designed as an interdisciplinary program for students with a strong interest in biology and chemistry. The program will prepare a forensic science major to work in a modern crime laboratory at local, regional, state, and/or federal levels. Students may also pursue careers within the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Food and Drug Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
The use of state-of-the-art science instrumentation is integrated throughout the forensic science curriculum. This allows the focus to shift from data collection to data analysis and experimental design. This further provides the students with opportunities to practice research-grade data collection and become involved in the process of science.

"In chemistry, it's all about your lab technique. At Alvernia I learned how to do chemistry, correctly and efficiently. I learned to work at a quick pace and think ahead." -Jason Betz '08, Adpen Laboratories, Jacksonville, FL
