Pathway Program in Forensic Medicine

The Pathway Program is designed for non-science majors who are interested in forensic medicine and who possess a bachelor’s degree in a forensic-related field to receive the necessary preparation to enter the Master of Science in Forensic Medicine Program. This is a summer preparatory course in general biology and human anatomy & physiology. Courses for the Pathway Program are offered 100 percent online. Upon successful completion of the Pathway Program, the student will enter the Master of Science in Forensic Medicine Program beginning the fall semester immediately following.

NOTE: It is important to note that neither a degree nor a certificate is awarded upon completion of the Pathway Program.

"The Pathway Program was a nice refresher in preparation for the master’s courses, as it allowed us to be thoroughly prepared and seamlessly integrated into the master’s program. Participating in the Pathway and MS in Forensic Medicine programs was definitely one of the best experiences of my life.”
Adam Capel (MS Forensic Medicine Class of 2011)
