Forensic science schools in Illinois train students to use science to solve and prevent criminal activity. Forensic science students typically take a heavy course load of science courses, such as chemistry, anatomy, physiology, biology and physics, along with criminal justice classes. Typical criminal justice classes include crime scene investigation, criminal evidence and procedures, and the U.S. justice system. Forensic science students spend a lot of time in the laboratory and the filed honing their expertise. Students typically need at least a two-year associate’s degree to qualify for entry level jobs. Salaries for forensic science jobs are typically higher than most other criminal justice-related jobs.
