The Forensic Science Program at Penn State strives to be an international leader in forensic science education, and produce graduates who will become future leaders in the field. We offer a rigorous curriculum that emphasizes a strong science foundation, ensuring our students will be well prepared for careers in forensic science, criminalistics, or another science-based profession.

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. The program retains its own Academic Adviser who works exclusively with our forensic students to assist them in the development of their academic plans, and also offers guidance to students as they navigate through their time at Penn State. To learn more about the faculty and staff, please visit the People area of the website.

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.

Please take some time to explore the Undergraduate area of our website to learn more about the academic program and resources available to our Forensic Science students.
