Forensic Medicine Pathway


Online Forensic Medicine Pathway Preparatory Course

PCOM's online Forensic Medicine Pathway is designed to prepare non-science majors who are interested in forensic medicine and who possess a bachelor's degree in a forensic-related field to enter the Master of Science in Forensic Medicine program.


The online Forensic Medicine Pathway is a summer course covering general biology, human anatomy and physiology. Upon successful completion of the online Pathway, students will enter the Master of Science (MS) in Forensic Medicine program beginning the fall semester immediately following.

The online Forensic Medicine Pathway is a preparatory course only—neither a forensic medicine degree nor a certificate is awarded upon completion of the Pathway.

Typically, our enrolled Forensic Medicine Pathway students have professional backgrounds or undergraduate majors in:

  • Anthropology
  • Business
  • Criminal justice and criminology
  • Education
  • Law practice and law enforcement
  • Psychology
  • Social Work
  • Sociology
