Forensic Science (B.A.)

Forensic Science has helped shaped society on a global scale

The field of forensic science continues to expand and advances in the industry have had a major impact across the spectrum of crime and law enforcement.

The B.A. program covers the scientific basis and techniques of forensic investigation and other courses specific to the student’s chosen career path. Students may choose a career path that is more laboratory or research-based, while others may opt to pursue a future in a law enforcement setting.

With two concentrations to choose from – chemistry and psychology, the course work requirements for each will vary based on which concentration the student chooses.

Discovery. Analysis. Purpose.

The Forensic Science B.A. program offers students the option to select from two specific concentrations within the program – chemistry and psychology. Both concentrations are designed to help students pursue a different career path within the field of forensic science and includes coursework specific to each.

“St. Andrews offers an educational experience that simply cannot be found at large schools — a safe campus on a beautiful lake with small classes where we learned how to really think for ourselves. St. Andrews professors care about their students and are able to provide individual attention — unlike some larger schools where classes may be taught by GAs. Attending St. Andrews was one of the best decisions that I have ever made.”
