Accelerated BA/BS-MS in Forensic Pattern Analysis Program

The Forensic Pattern Analysis program offers an accelerated BA/BS-MS program for current undergraduate students. Students should apply for the MS program during their junior year through the Office of Graduate Admissions.

To apply for the accelerated program, a student is expected to have taken the following undergraduate courses: BL 101  and either ST 110 ST 210 , or ST 265 . Once accepted into the program, three graduate courses may be taken that apply towards both the undergraduate and graduate programs. If a student has previously taken one of the undergraduate versions of the program courses, the course is waived from the graduate program but must be replaced with an additional graduate elective.  However, students must complete FO 675, FO 710 and FO 790 at the graduate level.

Students interested in applying to the BA/BS-MS program may do so by going to the Office of Graduate Admission and completing the online application. The admission requirements also include two letters of recommendation (both of which must be from Loyola faculty members) and an essay. Official transcripts are automatically requested and the $60 application fee is waived for all current students.
