Masters in Forensics Rankings

Master of Forensics Rankings

Because there are several academic disciplines associated with forensics we have selected schools for psychology, forensics science, information technology and criminal justice that have relevant master's degrees. The study of forensics science requires a strong science undergraduate background; the other fields are open to students with a variety of bachelor's degrees. While some of these programs can be found as online options that may or may not be the case in the schools we have listed in our rankings, simply because forensics remains an area of specialization that is not as commonly taken up at the graduate level as other specializations in these fields.

    • Boston University has the second Master in Forensic Sciences degree in New England and the only one offered in Massachusetts.
