Forensic Science Studies is an interdisciplinary degree designed for those who want to find careers as forensic science lab technicians. You will learn how to apply scientific principles to physical evidence.

Forensic scientists work primarily in laboratories, and many recent graduates of the program have found employment at the NY State Police Forensics Investigation Center. The program has dedicated laboratory facilities on campus.

This is primarily a transfer program as most graduates continue their education to complete a bachelor's degree and beyond. Graduates will have an opportunity to transfer seamlessly to John Jay College of Criminal Justice, one of the world's forensic science leaders.

This program is offered through the Business and Criminal Justice Department.
