To minor in forensic science, students must complete 18 hours of study. This includes 9 hours of upper-level courses. This minor is for students who have a science background. Depending on the student’s specific interests, it is suggested that they major in Biology, Chemistry, Anthropology, Physics or Psychology.
Most degree programs at Baylor do not require a student to select a minor area of study. Students may choose to minor in a field that supplements their major. They may choose to pursue an area of academic interest completely outside their major. For example, a student wanting to do graduate studies in Forensic Science may choose to minor in Forensic Science as an undergraduate.
Courses a student might take include Crime Scene Investigation, Bloodstain Pattern Analysis or Impression Evidence.
