The certificate program in criminal investigations educates students about a variety of aspects of criminal investigations and criminalistics. It is designed to provide students of the social sciences, natural sciences, humanities and public services with an understanding of the nature of criminal evidence; the language of forensic science; the scope, probative value and limitations of a variety of investigative specializations and their techniques; and an appreciation of how forensic investigative methods are used in the quest for justice. The certificate program allows students to satisfy at least two of their General Studies requirements (SQ and SB) in a thematic manner, but it is not designed to prepare students to work in a crime laboratory.
