Trent University is expanding its popular and cutting-edge roster of Forensic Science program offerings with the addition of two new Bachelor of Science degrees and a specialization, making the breadth of forensic programming at Trent among the best in Canada.
Now accepting applications for fall 2019, the new Bachelor of Science in Forensic Chemistry, Bachelor of Science in Forensic Biology and Specialization in Law & Policing will provide students with vital career-boosting experiential learning opportunities. Students in these new programs, and in any Forensic Science program at Trent, have the chance to participate in a specialized placement with federal organizations such as the OPP, RCMP, the Centre of Forensic Science or Canada Border Services, to gain real-world experience as they build their professional networks.
“Trent’s Forensic Science degrees have always included a high level of science-based programming,” explains Dr. Christopher Kyle, chair and a professor of Forensic Science at Trent University. “By listening to our students and the demands of a competitive industry, we feel confident these new degree programs will give students a unique opportunity to specialize further in the fields of Forensic Biology and Forensic Chemistry. By pursuing the new specialization in Law and Policing, our graduates will be ideally suited to meet the changing demands in the law enforcement community.”
Building upon Trent’s internationally-recognized Forensic Science programming and expert faculty, the new Forensic Biology and Forensic Chemistry degrees expose students to intensive theory and innovative practice in law, bloodstain pattern analysis, the analytical characterization of evidence and DNA techniques and applications.
Students in the Forensic Biology program receive a comprehensive Biology education, working alongside top faculty and researchers to apply biological theories to the practical application of crime scenes and criminal investigations. Students accepted into the Forensic Chemistry program are given an in-depth education in forensic chemical analysis, gaining hands-on experience in everything from biochemical and environmental Chemistry to inorganic, organic and physical Chemistry.
In addition, the specialization in Law & Policing, a cluster of courses which can be added to any Forensic Science degree, provides students with a greater focus on the application of forensic scientific principles and techniques within the Canadian legal system, crime scenes, and policing.
Along with the new programs, Trent also offers Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science honours degree, unique joint majors in Forensics (B.A. or B.Sc.), and a new Master of Science in Forensic Science — the only program of its kind in Canada. With cutting-edge labs and true-to-life on-campus crime scene house, the new and existing programs at Trent provide future forensics experts with the skills and knowledge they need to process cases from crime scene to courtroom.
