Schools Offering Online Forensic Science programs

Forensic scientists perform a specialized type of detective work: they may gather, store, and analyze physical evidence to determine what happened and who did it, particularly at a crime scene. Forensic scientists are needed as part of many criminal police investigations and legal proceedings, and may serve as legal testimony or expert witnesses in court.

In the course of their work, forensic scientists may find themselves analyzing human remains, blood splatters, tire tracks, fingerprints, teeth, fibers, hair, firearms, bodily fluids, drugs, computers, electronic devices, animals, insects, soils, weather patterns, and records – depending upon the forensic scientist's particular specialty.
