Forensic Chemistry Education Requirements
Colleges that specialize in Forensic Chem.
A Forensic Chemist with a bachelor's degree will most likely make an estimate of $52,840 (as of 2012).Therefore, yes be certain that a forensic chemist will make a higher annual wage with a higher degree.
Requirements vary by employer, but forensic science requires an undergraduate and graduate degree. In other cases, becoming a Forensic Chemist or any kind of Forensic Scientist begins with a Bachelor's degree from an accredited college or University.
Ashford University: $11,153 (as of '15-'16)
University of Phoenix: $12,000 for and undergraduate (as of 2009) 4-year: $26,000 4-year (out-of-state): $18,500
Eastern Kentucky University: $16,260 ---> Non-Resident: $25,332
Most commonly, forensic chemists are required to work with The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). As well as working for a Police Department, or for the CSI.
On an average day, forensic chemists apply knowledge from diverse disciplines such as chemistry, biology, materials science, and genetics to analyze evidence found at crime scenes or in the bodies of crime suspects. Forensic chemists often don't know the nature of the sample before they analyze it. as a result, they use criminalistics, the qualitative examination of evidence in body fluids through a range of instrumental techniques from optical methods (UV, infrared,and X-ray spectroscopy) to separations analyzes (gas chromatography, HPLC, and thin-layer chromatography). Mass spectrometry is also frequently used since it provides the strongest evidence in court. The results of their work are used in police investigations and court trials, at which they may be called upon to provide expert testimony and explained their findings to a jury.
1. Forensic Science wasn't invented by a scientist
2. In the case of forensic entomology, scientists examine insects found in and around the human remains to determine the time of death.
3.Forensic toxicology studies the effect of drugs and poisons on the human body in relation to medical and legal situations.
4. People are easily identified by their dental records.
5. DNA profiling was first developed in 1985.
