Forensic Science Minor

Study Across Disciplines

More

As a forensic science minor at Truman, you learn how to gather and analyze information about the past using the scientific method. Whether you’re interested in law enforcement, archaeology, history, biology, geology, or astronomy, learning to scientifically analyze data will boost your skill set no matter what career paths you pursue.

Choose Your Own Adventure

Pursue one of two paths in the forensic science minor:

  • Forensic DNA lab-oriented: When you are finished, you’ll have completed the Federal Bureau of Investigation coursework guidelines for forensic DNA lab technician positions.
  • Forensic chemistry lab-oriented: Take this path if you’re interested in a career in forensic analytical chemistry immediately after graduation.

Discover New Connections

At Truman, we know that all fields of study are connected in fascinating ways. Forensic Science is one of several interdisciplinary studies programs available for you to explore the new possibilities that open up when two or more fields overlap. Our interdisciplinary studies major even allows you to custom-design your own field of study.
