Forensic Science

Forensic science, or the application of scientific analyses to legal matters, was made popular by numerous television shows and movies.

But what is it really like to process crime scenes and analyze evidence?

The mission of the forensic science program at HCC is to prepare students to become productive and thoughtful members of the forensic science community and the larger communities in which they learn, work, and live by providing a comprehensive knowledge base using quality instruction. We encourage and empower students to challenge themselves academically.

The program prepares students for transfer to a four-year institution in forensic science or related field, or for entry-level laboratory positions in closely related fields.
