* Note that not all research or internship experiences through PY 435  and SC 401  are appropriate for the forensic studies capstone requirement and thus need prior approval from the forensic studies director and appropriate department chair. Other experiences may fulfill the capstone requirement but only with the approval of the forensic studies director.

+ At least one FS elective must be from a different academic division (i.e., Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural and Applied Sciences, and Business) than the other four.

** Courses offered spring semester only.

++ Courses offered fall semester only.

Notes:


  1. Students may count courses in the forensic studies major and another major or minor, consistent with the double course counting policy of the University and/or the academic program.
  2. For students with a double major in biology, psychology, or sociology, no more than three courses from each major may be double counted in the forensic studies major (i.e., biology and forensic studies, psychology and forensic studies, or sociology and forensic studies). The only exception is the forensic capstone course, which does not count as one of the three courses.
