Program Overview

Program Description:
The M. S. in Forensic Studies is an interdisciplinary scholar/practitioner program that offers a higher degree of specialization in comparison to the more general B.S. in Forensic Studies. Our program offers comprehensive, interdisciplinary training through two applied research concentrations: (1) Forensics Behavioral Analyst and (2) Human Identity & Trauma. Our program comprises a rigorous curriculum that prepares students by grounding them in theory, methods, and hands-on training. The Forensic Behavioral Analysis concentration integrates classical theory with contemporary research to synthesize theoretical perspectives to address current social problems relating to violence, sexual deviance, domestic relations, crime, and terrorism. There are a breadth of employment opportunities for graduates of this concentration including local, state, and federal crime and terrorism intelligence, law enforcement, and corrections, as well as capacities in child welfare and domestic violence.
