Forensic Science encompasses many fields and disciplines related to the application of science to the law.

Mason provides strong theoretical and operational foundations and outstanding scholarship to undergraduate and graduate students seeking forensic science careers. These programs address the growing national and regional demand for trained forensic scientists and technicians. They combine a solid foundation in legal and technical crime scene investigation with scientific skills relevant to forensics, and are especially relevant for students involved in the high-technology law enforcement workplace in Northern Virginia.
