法医化学

做个专家,从实验室到法庭.

的 criminal justice field involves more than police officers and lawyers. 法医化学家在调查中也起着重要作用. 他们专门分析证据, and they use scientific processes to draw conclusions about a crime. 

York College’s major in 法医化学 places you at a distinct advantage for careers requiring both a robust understanding of chemistry and problem-solving skills. You’ll get hands-on experience with 状态-of-the-art laboratory equipment, and you’ll work closely with a faculty of expert chemists who will guide you through research and project-based learning. 

就业 opportunities in forensic chemistry are projected to grow by 14% from 2019 to 2029 — a much faster rate than most other occupations. 其结果是,美国.S. 美国劳工统计局(Bureau of Labor Statistics)预计,400 new forensic chemistry jobs will be created during this 10-year period. 在ladbrokes立博亚洲的法医化学项目, you’ll build a strong foundation for a future in this quickly growing field.
