Description:Forget what you might have seen on TV shows like CSI and Bones. Real forensic science is much more complex; giving you a firm grounding in the sciences as a foundation for forensic investigations.

Forensic science applies scientific knowledge to legal matters. Forensic scientists strive to provide impartial evidence for use in courts to support the prosecution or defense in criminal and civil investigations. Saint Mary’s University has the only forensic science program east of Toronto, and you can apply for this program during the first year of your undergraduate degree.
