Ryan’s Answer

Hello, here is a list of the FEPAC accredited schools for forensic science. I went to West Virginia University and it was great, but there are others. I recommend not going to a forensics program that is not accredited, as they are not as good.

Marshall’s Answer

This is what I found with a Google search, you can see if there is anything that is close to you and do a campus visit, meet some students and professors and possibly sit in on a class to get a better idea if its a fit for you.

david’s Answer

Questions such as this seem to be a window not being opened for students. That is, this is a simple question where the best answer will come from any internet search engine. I typed the words into a search engine and an extensive amount of information was presented. This is also an empowering knowledge for students, knowing how to use the internet for answers to generic questions, using this forum for those special questions that are most beneficial when answered by experienced professionals.
Thank you comment icon Hey David, I completely understand your perspective, but I want to chime in and say that information on search results can be very difficult to navigate through. You're flooded with information, and each site says something different. The hope here is that someone who has gone through a forensic science program will talk about their experiences at a specific college and lend that expertise! A perfect example of this is Ryan who answered this question :) Gurpreet Lally, Admin
Thank you comment icon Thanks for the other perspective. Much appreciated. david kirk
