Forensic Chemistry Concentration

 

The Forensic Chemistry concentration (formerly Scientist Track) is designed for students who have a hard science background (i.e., chemistry, biology) and wish to work in a traditional laboratory setting. Students pursuing this concentration must have a Bachelor's degree in a forensic or natural science. Applicant's undergraduate work will be evaluated to determine if the student has sufficient scientific background to successfully complete this concentration. Note: This concentration requires the completion of a formal thesis. The beginning of data collection typically occur during the summer between the first and second years of the program, and may require the student to remain in Lubbock or travel to the data collection location.
