Forensic Science Educational Requirements

If you want to study forensic science, you must have at least a bachelor’s degree or any other equivalent coursework in sciences such as biology, chemistry, criminology, or physics. At the bachelor’s degree level, you must study chemistry as one of your major subjects and focus ideally on studies about microscopy and statistics.

Many sub-categories are there in forensic science; you can choose one of the courses available based on the personal position and preferences of the individuals. Individuals intending to study this course must familiarize themselves with forensic science literature. Undergoing the General Knowledge Examination conducted by the American Board of Criminalistics is an added advantage both for the course and the carrier; however, one can still take this examination after her/she completes the forensic science degree.
