Erik’s Answer

The most common degree is Biology. There are some more technical degree programs focused on DNA for law enforcement bound graduates, but you definitely need a biology background with a focus on genetics. Explore how you would want to practice your craft and it will better inform the type of education you'll want to pursue. A Masters might be required depending on which field you're interested in.

Hello Jillian,
If you want to study Forensic science, you can start with any science degree (with Biology & Chemistry). There are some college offering Forensic science and Genetics as part of Under Graduation and P.G.
