Program Overview

The AU Chemistry program is nationally accredited with students having the option of obtaining an American Chemical Society (ACS) certified degree. The Forensic Science Concentration provides a flexible curriculum to allow students to customize their education to suit the career aspirations.  This flexibility is well-suited for students completing pre-medical, pre-dental, or pre-pharmacy requirements.  Major electives provide breadth of experience through coursework in biology as well as non-science courses in judicial process or communications to complement a rigorous chemistry curriculum.  Coursework in judicial process is important for a forensic scientist, and advanced communications skills are universally valued by employers.
