The Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) Forensics Certificate is designed for students seeking to work in a field or occupation that utilizes the art and science of managing and profiling crime scenes. This certificate is designed to introduce students to a world in which science interacts with criminal justice and the courtroom.  

This program is designed for students looking to pursue a career in Justice Studies and/or are interested in eventually seeking a science-related degree in combination with their professional development or change of career/occupation.  

The CSI Forensics Certificate is ideal for those currently in the field as law enforcement personnel, such as attorneys, civil and criminal investigators, evidence custodians and technicians, and other members involved in criminal investigations who would like to further develop their skills and expertise. 

The courses in the 12-credit CSI Forensics CE Certificate courses will be offered in a 15-week format either onsite or online. Each course will be three (3) credit hours. Credits from completing this certificate program may be applied toward credits required for a B.S. degree in Justice Studies-Criminal Justice.
