Olivet College now offers forensic science minor
Dec 12, 2007

Olivet College is now offering a minor in forensic science for undergraduates majoring in chemistry. The minor, implemented this semester, is an outgrowth of the criminal justice and chemistry programs that will foster an interdisciplinary approach to solving crime. This program is unique to the Michigan region because it allows for students to receive formal training in forensic science at the undergraduate level.

The minor requires students to complete 27 semester hours in addition to the 56 semester hours for the chemistry major. In addition to training in the college’s improved laboratory facilities, students will complete coursework in chemistry, physics, biology, crime scene processing, criminal investigation and criminal law and police procedure. Real-world internship experience will also prepare graduates for job opportunities.

The goal is to run a high quality program that could help Olivet College students get hired by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms; state crime labs; insurance companies; and local law enforcement labs.
