Program Content and Sensitive Topics

The Forensic Science Program curriculum, by its very nature, includes sensitive topics such as drug overdose, drug-facilitated sexual assault, sexual violence, domestic violence, postmortem forensic toxicology, homicides, and other violent crime.  Our faculty endeavor to handle these topics with the appropriate respect, professionalism, gravity, and discretion.  However, students should be aware that these and other topics involving criminal behavior are covered in numerous courses throughout the curriculum.  Some courses also include in-depth discussion and case studies.
