Stevenson University Online's Master of Forensic Science is designed for working professionals who want to learn the instrumentation, technology, and pertinent law used to collect evidence for presentation in a court of law. Developed for working adults with a natural-science background, Stevenson University’s fully online program provides exceptional training that fits your lifestyle. A master’s in Forensic Science prepares graduates to become leaders in their field through tailored education in the sciences and gaining a thorough knowledge of law fundamentals.
Within our Forensic Science graduate program, students will experience highly-specialized training in the sciences and a core of law courses. Through Stevenson University Online’s relationship with the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division, U.S. Secret Service Lab, and the Baltimore County Crime Lab, students will receive training from the top experts in the field. Students will receive professional insights from leaders in the field to help prepare them to work as forensic specialists. With specific insights that come from known leaders, graduates of this program will be prepared to work as forensic specialists in this interdisciplinary and applied scientific field.
Stevenson University Online strives to provide students the tools they need as they pursue their training while simultaneously managing a career. We provide choices within the program for students to fine-tune their education to their needs. Students have the opportunity to work onsite at crime laboratories and witness firsthand how evidence is received, analyzed by the appropriate forensic units, and then returned for storage in the Evidence Vault through the FSCI 655 Practicum Rotation course or they can opt for an online experience of learning the structure and operations of a modern-day crime laboratory facility by taking FSCI 675 The Crime Laboratory: Structure and Operations. Additionally, students can select from two concentrations of study based on their personal interests and career aspirations: Biology or Chemistry.
Students will examine the science underlying DNA analysis and analyze serological evidence and immunological evidence.
Students will examine the science underlying chemical analysis and analyze chemical and trace evidence. Graduates will have the ability to describe the toxicology and analytical chemistry relevant to isolating and identifying drugs and toxic substances.
Students seeking forensic laboratory positions within the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) or a state-specific crime lab should note that academic and professional qualifications may vary by state or organization of employment.
