Forensic Science Minor
Forensic Science, the study of how science is applied to questions of interest to the legal system, is comprised of a broad spectrum of disciplines including anthropology, chemistry, dentistry, entomology, geology, soil science, and pathology.
The Forensic Science Minor is offered through the Division of Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS). It is intended for students wishing to complement their departmental Majors who have an interest in forensic science, but do not have a strong background in the physical and natural sciences.
