MY EXPERIENCE AT HUSSON UNIVERSITY

Going for any of the courses at the college encouraged me to participate in a vibrant, faculty-led research program on campus. Hands-on experience at field research sites in the Husson University is provided to me. My course helps to complete a thesis involving faculty-supervised original research or a comprehensive analysis of literature on any topic of interest.


Course Curriculum - 

The course of Forensic science specialists examines and evaluates physical evidence, using chemical, microscopic, instrumental and physical methods of analysis. I am also required to work with blood and other biological fluids, hair, gunshot residue, drugs, fibers, paint, and glass. After becoming a Forensic science specialist, I will be responsible for preparing the written reports on my findings, serving as expert witnesses in court hearings, and conducting research regarding new technologies, equipment, and techniques.
