The Biotechnology: Forensic Science Technician concentration (A.A.S. degree program) provides students with the biotechnology and forensic skills necessary for working in a federal, state, local, or private criminal investigation laboratory. The program core consists of intensive laboratory-based courses including Chemistry, Biology, and Forensic Science BioTechniques, culminating in an internship. Application for the Special Degree Program can be submitted after the first semester courses are complete.
This program is designed as a terminal degree for a specific career field. Candidates for graduation must earn a minimum grade of “C” in all BIOT courses required for the degree.
Additional Recommended Courses:
The following are additional recommended courses that will meet requirements for some advanced Biotechnology: Forensic Science Technician degrees at other institutions. The student should consult with their Biotechnology Advisor prior to taking any additional course. Those courses for university transfer should be selected from the General Education page. Examine current catalogs of other schools and programs for appropriate options.
