Crime Scene Investigation Schools and Colleges

Crime scene investigators usually hold bachelor’s degrees in forensic biology, anthropology, or science. Students enrolled in forensic science programs learn about biochemistry, molecular biology, and criminal justice. To improve career opportunities, students in these programs often specialize in evidence retrieval, DNA profiling, toxicology, and fingerprint analysis.

Crime scene investigators are not required to earn forensic science degrees, although they’re relevant for careers in this field. Crime scene investigators hold degrees in various fields, but those with degrees unrelated to forensic science must complete extra training. Many colleges and universities offer crime scene investigation associate’s degree programs. Aspiring investigators not interested in studying forensic science should study chemistry, biology, or a related scientific discipline.
