Status: Full Accreditation for the Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, and Genetic Engineering with a concentration in Forensic Science

Founded in 1867, Cedar Crest College is a school whose student body made up entirely of women. It is also one of only 13 undergraduate institutions to hold the FEPAC accreditation. The Master of Science degree in Forensic Science is a full-time, two year program is designed to train prospective forensic scientists in all areas of Criminalistics, while giving them a meaningful forensic science research experience and the opportunity to develop written and oral communication skills.

Students participating in Cedar Crest’s forensic science program, do not focus on one particular discipline in forensic science, instead giving students a generalist perspective. They believe physical evidence is likely to contain probative information in a variety of forms, including physical, biological or chemical. Therefore, they teach their students to never anticipate an item is what it is until it has been examined and analyzed.
