Chair's Welcome

Welcome to the Forensic Science program on Pace University’s New York City Campus. Forensic Science is the field in which science is used to address matters of the law.

Pace offers both BS and MS programs in Forensic Science. Both the undergraduate and graduate programs are supported by two strong academic departments, Chemistry and Biology, whose faculty members combine exceptional teaching skills with pioneering published research in their respective fields. They are top-notch professionals in criminalistics, forensic chemistry, and forensic biology.

In addition, these programs have fully equipped facilities for forensic chemistry and biology, including a new state-of-the-art DNA sequencing lab and specialized laboratories for crime scene reconstruction, forensic microscopy, questioned documents, and virtual crime scene reconstruction. What makes these programs truly unique are their location in the heart of New York City. Many of our faculty members maintain full-time affiliations with major forensic laboratories of local and federal law enforcement agencies, allowing them to bring the latest advances in forensic science into the classroom and to bring students into the field by providing internships.

We encourage you to learn more about our programs and to please contact us if you have any quetions at studying Forensic Science at Dyson College of Arts and Sciences.
