The Undergraduate Certificate in Forensics is completed entirely online. This allows working adults to fit quality education into their existing schedules. Through this fascinating program, learners gain a foundational understanding of the leading principles of criminal liability.

The program teaches the science and art of managing and profiling crime scenes and determining subsequent perpetrators utilizing physical and psychological evidence gathering and analysis. Explore investigative practices for scientifically determining causes of sudden, unexpected, and violent death by examining real-case scenarios. The curriculum also addresses motivating social and environmental causal factors leading to deviant behavior so students develop a well-balanced perspective of the central ingredients that lead to crime against individuals and society.

Classes are instructed by expert professors with extensive field experience. Students learn directly from experienced practitioners, many who bring lessons they’ve learned as sheriffs, legal counsel, police chiefs, and military and homeland security leaders into the online classroom.
