University of Mississippi Forensic Chemistry Honored as Leading National Program

Posted by: on May 8, 2014 | No Comments has named the forensic chemistry program at the University of Mississippi one of the finest in the nation. U.S. News and World Report comprehensive surveys, reputation among professionals and peers, and cost and opportunities for experience rank the Forensic Chemistry program in the top 13. UM’s forensic chemistry program is the only one in the state and among only three forensic chemistry programs in the south and six nationally accredited by the Forensic Science Educations Programs Accreditation Commission.

The UM forensic chemistry program contains a demanding science-based curriculum that prepares graduates for versatile careers in forensics laboratories. Although the University of Mississippi only offers a B.S. in forensic chemistry, a major difference that sets this program aside from all others is that all students in the program are enrolled in a summer internship with a local criminal laboratory. Because of the hands-on experience, more than 70% of graduates find employment upon graduation, many of them working in local and federal crime labs.
