We offer a rigorous curriculum that is focused in the core sciences so that our students will be well prepared for a career as a scientist, forensic scientist, and professional.
The Forensic Science Faculty and staff are dedicated to the success of our students. The faculty members bring expert multi-disciplinary and real-world experience to our program. Four full time staff members offer additional support for the program and students. Tricia Hunt serves as the Academic Adviser for the Forensic Science Program and works with students to assist them in the development of their academic plans and offer guidance as they navigate through their time at Penn State.

In addition to the program support services, students in the Forensic Science Program are supported by services offered through their College, the Eberly College of Science. Within the College, there is a centralized College of Science Advising office and a Career and International Education office. Students are encouraged to utilize the resources available through these offices.
