The Rutgers-Camden master of science in forensic science offers a comprehensive program of study that leads to employment as a practitioner or admission to graduate/professional schools. Students select an area of concentration and tune their schedules to reflect their personalized career goals.
The program is designed to meet the requirements necessary for employment as a forensic chemist, toxicologist, or a forensic biologist.
A candidate for the master's degree must complete a total of at least 49 credits of graduate work. The course of study is highly structured but also allows for students to concentrate in the areas of forensic chemistry, toxicology, and forensic biology.
Students complete a capstone project of original research under the supervision of practicing forensic professionals.
