BGSU is joining the very small number of colleges nationally with on-campus crime labs with the soon-to-open BCI. Having access to personnel from a state-of-the-art crime lab will provide students opportunities for learning through internships and guest lectures. That interaction will help prepare them for careers in public safety and the growing field of forensic sciences.
Biology is offering a new class this fall: Molecular Biology Techniques Laboratory to train both forensic students and molecular biology students in molecular techniques used in forensics labs (and elsewhere). Dr. Scott Rogers is teaching this class and has previous experience in the discipline and BGSU is among a limited number of schools offering such a class.
