Crime scene processing is increasingly becoming a multi-disciplinary endeavor with the application of technologically advanced methods. Treatment of the initial crime scene is fundamental not only to the pursuit of offenders but also to the presentation of the prosecutor's case once offenders have been apprehended. The certificate program is a means of organizing information required to perform basic crime scene investigations. It provides theoretical and practical information used to assess crime scenes, the technology available and the procedures to employ in order to produce a forensically valuable product. The program requires 15 credit hours of undergraduate work. Certificates will be awarded only at the time of degree completion.
