California State University, Stanislaus
Criminal Justice B.A. Concentration in Forensic Science

The Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice program offers an appreciation of the full complexity of American criminal justice and permits students the opportunity to understand fully the social, legal, and technical processes within the various criminal justice agencies. The major requires the study of a variety of courses pertaining to the administration of criminal justice and an equal number of courses on the nature of criminal behavior, as well as its social and psychological causes. The concentrations require completion of the lower-division prerequisites, the required core courses, and the requirements of the concentration.

Our Forensics concentration offers a broad-based curriculum in the forensic sciences. It is intended for students who wish to pursue a career in field work, such as crime scene investigation. Students who wish to be criminalists (that is, to work in a crime lab, analyzing evidence) should major in Chemistry or Biology, and also choose the Forensics minor. Students who wish to specialize in other areas of Forensics, such as Forensic Anthropology or Forensic Psychology, should major in those areas, but may wish to minor in Criminal justice.
