The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Forensic Science: Crime Lab prepares students for employment in forensic crime labs as assistants to crime lab criminalists and provides the first half of a four-year undergraduate program of study designed to prepare students as crime lab criminalists. The program combines crime scene technology and criminal justice courses with general education courses and additional math, physics, and chemistry courses.
The Forensic Science program is hosted in the Applied Sciences Building on SCC Campus. This 42,500 square foot state-of-the-art facility was built in 1999 and provides strong support for numerous outstanding occupational programs.
In addition to the standard lecture rooms, the Forensic Science program uses two specialty classrooms.
The Forensic Science Lab is used for students to examine items such as blood or hair samples.
The Mock Crime Scene is set up for students to create a crime scene portrayal, and then investigate for forensic evidence.
