Criminalistics Track

Criminalistics is the science of associating and identifying evidence, interpreting the results of various scientific tests (e.g., ballistics, DNA, gunshot residue, etc.), and reconstructing crime scenes. The track in criminalistics is designed to help students acquire the skills, knowledge, and abilities necessary to evaluate the results reached by criminalists in the performance of their duties, and to apply those results in judicial and quasi-judicial proceedings.
