From the beginning of their undergraduate forensic studies at Trent, B.Sc.F.S. students are fully immersed in a functioning forensic research and service environment located in the DNA Building. Students practice case work, learn team-building, analyze ethical and legal issues related to evidence, and face the challenge of communicating complex scientific evidence within the legal system. Students in the program may also participate in a placement/mentorship course where they gain valuable “real-world” experience and begin to develop their professional network.
The next four years are paved with many decisions. We encourage you to look beyond the first year courses and assess what the requirements are in the upper year courses. Please explore the Academic Calendar ( https://www.trentu.ca/registrar/academic-calendar )to understand the graduation requirements and explore a full listing of courses and descriptions.
Please note, In February 2018, Senate approved the introduction of a new university degree regulation requiring all undergraduate students beginning studies at Trent in fall 2018 or thereafter complete at least one course with approved Indigenous content. This new academic regulation implements the recommendation from the Special Committee on Indigenous Education Report approved by Senate in March 2017. You will find a listing of approved indigenous study courses here:http://trentu.ca/indigenous/icr.
