The Marshall University Forensic Science Graduate Program

The Marshall University Forensic Science Graduate Program is a FEPAC accredited two-year academic program leading to a Master of Science in Forensic Science degree. Our forensic science graduate program includes a five-semester core curriculum with both thesis and non-thesis options.

In addition to the core curriculum, four areas of emphasis are offered to graduate students for more in-depth education and training in specific forensic science disciplines. While one area of emphasis is required, students may complete all four areas of emphasis during their course of study. Areas of emphasis include DNA Analysis, Forensic Chemistry, Digital Forensics, and Crime Scene Investigation.
