Why EKU?

Being one of the oldest forensic science programs in the country, we have a national reputation for excellence in undergraduate education in Forensic Science, and are one of only 18 undergraduate programs in the U.S. that has received accreditation from the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.

EKU’s Forensic Science program has two options: Forensic Chemistry and Forensic Biology.

Forensic Science is NOT what you see on TV. If you become a Forensic Scientist, you will:

  • Accept and log in evidence
  • Decide how to analyze the evidence you receive
  • Perform analyses using careful techniques and scientific methods
  • Write reports detailing the results of your analyses
  • Offer testimony in court about some case
