¿Qué aprenderé?

Forensic science draws on many scientific disciplines in order to answer real world questions. We participate in making society a safer place for us all.

The mission of the Department of Forensic science at Laurentian University is to provide our students with an excellent scientific education within a legal context from forensic faculty who are practitioners and researchers in their respective areas of expertise and to prepare our students for careers either in forensic science or enable them to go on to further education in other scientific specialties or law.

Program Highlights:

We offer a curriculum that has been accredited by the Forensic Education Program Accreditation Commission (FEPAC). Employers of forensic labs now look for job candidates who have come out of FEPAC accredited programs prior to looking at other candidates. This gives our students a competitive advantage over other students.
The core science curriculum in the Laurentian University forensic science programs is complemented by comprehensive coursework in law and ethics, as they pertain to the forensic scientist.
Small class sizes (the largest forensic class is usually around 25 students).
Fourth-year thesis or internship; internships have been conducted with the following organization:

  • Ontario Provincial Police, Forensic Identification Services
  • South Porcupine Detachment
  • Sault Ste. Marie Detachment
  • North Bay Detachment
  • London Detachment
  • City of Greater Sudbury Police Service, Forensic Identification Services.
  • Royal St. Lucian Constabulary, Forensic Identification Branch, St. Lucia.
  • Office of the Chief Coroner of Ontario.
  • Regional Supervising Coroner, North Eastern Ontario
  • Regional Supervising Coroner, Northern Ontario
  • Chief Coroner of Ontario

The most common fields that students pursue after graduation from our programs are:

  • Graduate Study/Research: Biology, Chemistry, Anthropology, Forensic science
  • Medicine/Nursing
  • Dentistry
  • Education
  • Law
  • Policing In recent years

Students of the program have their own club known as the Laurentian Association of Forensic Scientists.
