The Forensic Science option is appropriate for students interested in working in a crime lab or pursuing a graduate degree in forensic science or chemistry. Students can earn a BS degree in Chemistry in four years and also take a combination of courses that enhance a chemistry major's background in biology, biochemistry, and related areas that can be important in forensic science.

The Forensic Science option is designed for the Track-Two BS degree in Chemistry.



The track-two core requirements are slightly modified for the Forensic Science option as follows:
