Is it necessary to minor in chemistry if I am interested in the criminal forensic laboratory field?
I am a current student at Xavier University located in Cincinnati, Ohio (Go Muskies!). I am double major in criminal justice and psychology and will hope to complete Xavier University with a bachelor degree in science. With my immense passion for justice, I want to take my bachelor degree to criminal forensic lab. However, I am concern that I may or may not be on the correct path in making my way to what I want to pursue in my career option. My concern is if whether I should continue my double major with criminal justice and psychology and go forth a minor in chemistry. Another option that I had in mind was if I should consider psychology as a minor and make chemistry my actual second major? I have already proceeded to gain required hours for my psychology major is that helps with anyone answering my question(s)/concern.
I would appreciate anyones guidance, professional or not. Thank you!

Congratulations on being interested in becoming involved in criminal forensics. It takes a special person to enter this field and meet the demands which this career area presents. The first step is to get to know yourself to see if you share the personality traits which make these people successful. The next step is doing networking to meet and talk to and possibly shadow people who are actually doing this work to see if this is something that you really want to do, as a career area could look much different on the inside than it looks from the outside.
