The forensics minor provides students with the opportunity to explore the different components of forensics through the interdisciplinary study of biology, psychology, sociology, and justice studies. This well-rounded curriculum will enable students to build upon their interests in justice studies by specializing in an area of increasing importance.

Once students have decided to pursue the minor, they are required to meet with the coordinator, academic counselor, or appropriate affiliated faculty adviser at least once per semester for regular review and assessment of their program, learning outcomes, and progress toward the degree.
