Forensic Biosciences Minor


The goal of this interdisciplinary minor is to provide students with a broad-based understanding of the field of forensic biosciences. The minor allows students to gain both a deep understanding of a traditional discipline through their major field of study while gaining experience with various aspects of forensic biology and criminal investigations. It is not designed to provide students necessarily with the methods and measures of forensics, which will come from student’s undergraduate fields of study and/or future graduate study. The purpose is to give students an understanding of the basic issues and the applications of those methods within the context of forensic biology.

Total Minor Requirements: 19-20
