Forensic Science Studies is an interdisciplinary degree designed for those who want to find careers as forensic science lab technicians. You will learn how to apply scientific principles to physical evidence.

Forensic scientists work primarily in laboratories, and many recent graduates of the program have found employment at the NY State Police Forensics Investigation Center. The program has dedicated laboratory facilities on the third floor of the college's Amstuz Science Hall.

This is primarily a transfer program as most graduates continue their education to complete a bachelor's degree and beyond.
