Message From the Director

Welcome and thank you for the interest in our graduate program. Over the last 20 years, the Forensic Science Center has grown in many ways, including development of a forensic science campus consisting of three buildings that house both the Master’s degree program and forensic laboratories.

During the development process, our faculty has expanded from one to three full time faculty and over 20 adjunct faculty. The Master’s degree program has been fully accredited by FEPAC for the third 5 year cycle. In addition, the digital forensics area of emphasis was FEPAC accredited in 2011, making it the first digital forensics offering to be accredited.

The May 2015 graduation saw the 293rd graduate receive their degree as part of the 19th graduating class. Our graduates are working in forensic laboratories throughout the country, many in leadership roles. We also look forward to expanding our class size and building out the third floor of the West Wing Annex to accommodate the chemistry and microscopy labs.

We hope that our graduates will stay in touch and update us on their careers and great things going on in their lives.

Dr. Catherine G. Rushton
