Lewis University Named Among Best Forensic Criminal Investigations Degrees

Published: November 2, 2020.

Lewis University was named one of the Best Forensics Undergraduate Programs of 2020-21 by CrimeSceneInvestigatorEDU.org for the bachelor of arts degree in Forensic Criminal Investigations.

The Forensic Criminal Investigator degree program prepares students to work as law enforcement officers and function as in-field crime scene investigators who collect, secure and preserve the physical evidence at crime scenes so critical to ensuring justice is served.

With the goal of identifying exceptional programs, CrimeSceneInvestigatorEDU.org reviewed every single forensic science undergraduate program offered at accredited schools in the U.S.

Schools that offer forensics degrees must have a real commitment to academic rigor to ensure students get the best opportunities for hands-on learning under the guidance of instructors with much experience to draw from.

Lewis students have the opportunity to travel to the University of Tennessee’s Forensic Anthropology Center. The intensive academic week includes Human Osteology, Bone Biology, Decomposition, Taphonomy, Forensic Entomology, Biological Profiling, Pathology and Trauma Analysis.  The highlight of the course is the Skeletal Recovery, in which students excavate and clear the site of debris, photograph various angles, set up a precise grid for measuring, draw each bone recovered at the site accurately, and ensure all remains are accounted for on-site. Graduates of Lewis University have been employed as death investigators for the Will County Coroner’s office and point to the travel study as having a fundamental impact in changing their career paths.

Lewis University’s Department of Justice, Law and Public Safety Studies Department offers labs equipped with advanced investigative technology, connections to world-class crime labs to facilitate student internships, and a long track record of exceptional student outcomes.

Lewis University is an innovative and forward-thinking Catholic university offering market-relevant undergraduate and graduate programs to 6,300 students. Sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, Lewis University is nationally recognized for preparing intellectually engaged, ethically grounded, globally connected and socially responsible graduates.
