B.S. at Russell Sage College

Graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science program at Russell Sage College compete favorably for technical positions in any state or private forensics laboratory.

The program is also suitable for students interested in secondary education in biology, law school, or graduate study in forensic biology or chemistry. With some additional coursework, the program is also suitable for pre-med students.

A dual major of Forensic Science and Chemistry (non-certified) requires only four additional courses,  making it an attractive option. Qualified students may complete their internship through INVEST.

Forensic Science is an interdisciplinary major. Students can minor in Criminal Justice, Biology or Environmental Science with relative ease due to the overlap of courses. Students connected with INVEST may wish to consider a minor in Business or Entrepreneurship. A minor in Chemistry is not allowed due to the complete overlap with courses required in the major.
