Law/Forensic Science


Degree Requirements


For those entering the legal profession, an understanding of the scientific analysis of evidence can greatly contribute to their effectiveness both in and out of court.  Both forensic science methods and their handling in court proceedings have undergone marked changes over recent years, and knowledge of both aspects will best prepare students for their future encounters with forensic evidence.

The Juris Doctor/Master’s of Science, in Forensic Science (General or Advanced Track) is a joint degree, conferred by both the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Law. A student who is admitted to one of these programs has the opportunity to obtain both the J.D. degree and the M.S., Forensic Science degree in substantially less time than would be required were the two degrees to be obtained independently.
