The field of forensic science offers many different career paths. Choosing one that best suits you can help you decide the educational route to take. Many forensic scientists work in laboratories, where they analyze small samples of almost anything you can imagine. But before that evidence reaches the crime lab analyst, it is collected by a CST Investigator. Here are just a few of the possible career choices you can launch with a forensic science degree:
  • Pathologist
  • Criminologist
  • Crime Lab Analyst
  • Crime Scene Analyst
  • Fingerprinting Expert
  • Anthropologist
  • Forensic Psychologist
  • Behavioral Analyst
  • Medical Examiner
  • Criminalistics Analyst
Some of these careers require more than just a forensic science degree, such as the medical degree required for the medical examiner. However, starting with a bachelor's degree in forensic science gives you the foundation you need to move forward in any direction you choose.
