3 PhD Programs in Forensic Science 2023

Overview

Forensic science involves many different topics, including fingerprint analysis, DNA mapping, crime scene reconstruction, handwriting examination, criminal psychology and more. Many institutions of higher education offer courses in forensics for students who want to learn more about the legal applications of science.

The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is a doctoral or post-graduate degree. PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy), and PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways. To receive a PhD a student must demonstrate original research in their chosen field of study, produce a dissertation on that research, and defend their dissertation in front of other experts.
