Master’s in Forensic Toxicology & Analytical Genetics

As the flagship university in the Commonwealth, the University of Kentucky provides the only Master’s of Forensic Toxicology and Analytical Genetics (or degree of comparable nature) in the state, and it is only the fifth such professional master’s degree in the field of forensics in the nation.

This two-year program has two areas of concentration: one concentration is focused on Forensic Toxicology/Chemistry and the second on Forensic/Analytical Genetics. Through the common core curriculum, students in both concentrations will have foundational information and skill set in advanced forensic science, writing, communication, professionalism, ethics, legal perspectives, and workplace-specific laboratory skills. Through a rigorous targeted finishing curriculum in either concentration, including internship experiences and cognate elective courses, the graduates will be competitive for workforce deployment in the areas of private industry drug testing, private DNA analysis, forensic governmental divisions, and hospital clinical labs.

This new degree is an advanced training curriculum that includes courses to prepare students for courtroom testimony and two internship experiences to prepare students for rapid workforce deployment upon graduation.

More information can be found on the flyer and the program’s website.

The department is still recruiting students for Fall 2019, so this may be of interest to recent graduates! Interested students can email Isabel Mellon or the department.
