"The Penn State Forensic Science program has provided me with the critical thinking and problem solving skills necessary for the forensic field.  The hands-on experience from mock crime scene labs in the campus Victorian cottages truly prepared me for real world forensic situations.  Other schools do not offer such opportunities.  Intensive instructional coursesSharyn, research presentations, and course projects make us very well rounded.  Other universities require strict course work, but the flexibility of Penn State State scheduling allows students to pursue their own special areas of interest.  Ultimately, this program transforms us into the best candidates for forensic scientist positions in America."  Sharyn Miller, Chemistry 2012
