Forensic science applies natural sciences to matters of the law. The science draws upon chemistry, biology, physics and other scientific principles and methods. Forensic science is concerned with the identification, individualization and evaluation of physical evidence. Earning a forensic science degree in the field can open the door to a career in criminal justice as forensic scientists are trained to present their findings as expert witnesses in the court of law. Many are also a part of Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) teams. The curriculum at PBA is designed to feature a rigorous science base that will set this program apart from other undergraduate programs.

“Relationships with my professors is one of the best investments I made and one of the greatest benefits of attending PBA.”
