Status: Full Accreditation for the Master of Science Degree in Forensic Science

OSU was founded on Christmas Day, 1890, as the Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College it’s early days didn’t consist of classrooms, books or curriculum. It wasn’t until 1894 that classrooms were available, and it wasn’t until 1896 that the school graduated its first class (group of 6 males). On July 1, 1957 the university finally became Oklahoma State University. Included in the 350+ undergraduate and graduate degrees and options is the Master of Science degree in Forensic Science.

Getting into this program can be quite rewarding, due to the intense and competitive application process. Students who wish to attend OSU need to have high test scores, as well as grades and GPA averages throughout his/her educational career. Only 70 students are admitted each year on average, and not all of those students are in the forensic science program. These numbers change year to year based on the applicants applying.
