Forensic Science@IUPUI

Forensic science students at IUPUI are serious…and seriously excited about science.

In the fall of 2004, IUPUI began the first forensic science degree program in Indiana. This FEPAC accredited program was developed by faculty from the School of Law, the School of Science, and the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA).

Students here reap the benefits of an interactive learning environment and challenging material and lab work, and the unparalleled opportunities provided by a school that feels small but has access to the resources of a large university. 

We’re a community of learners and students thrive here. Students support each other through peer-lead mentoring, providing a unique environment where students become leaders by teaching others. Student clubs, volunteer programs and intramural sports are just a few of the opportunities for students to get involved outside of the classroom.

The Forensic & Investigative Sciences Program is an interdisciplinary program of the School of Science, which has seven departments situated in the heart of Indianapolis, near five hospitals, the Indiana University schools of medicine, dentistry and nursing, and countless science and technology companies. As early as their freshman year, our undergraduates are able to participate in real research with renowned faculty. Through internships and undergrad research, our students have opportunities to collaborate across disciplines, across campus, and across the academic and business communities.

Our graduates emerge as well-rounded scientists whose experiences have prepared them to solve the problems of the future.
