Forensic Sciences at Windsor: Two Degrees

Forensic science is the study of evidence in criminal investigation for presentation in courts of law. Crime scene artifacts are frequently perishable; their collection, packaging, preservation, and analysis require special expertise and scientific knowledge.

Our forensic programs focus on acquiring the skills essential to the practice of forensics. In both classroom and lab, you will learn the identification, preservation, measurement and analysis of evidence and interpersonal, public-speaking and critical thinking skills. You will learn how to report and present forensic evidence. You will also study law, criminality, judicial systems and the importance of high ethical standards in forensic investigations.
