Crime scene technician schools in Minnesota offer students a variety of educational options. Students may choose from two-year associate’s, four-year bachelor’s or master’s degrees in forensic science. Crime scene technicians learn to use science and technology to solve and prevent crimes. Students typically take science-centric classes such as inorganic and organic chemistry, biology, physics, anatomy and physiology, and microbiology. Crime scene technician programs may also include an externship component that allows students to work with law enforcement agencies in the field to gain real world experience. The career field is expected to grow at an average pace, and completion for vacancies is expected to be high.
