Cal U Offers New Programs In Criminal Justice Specialties

Forensic scientists are in high demand. Students can learn to use science to solve crimes – and position themselves for exciting careers – with new programs at California University of Pennsylvania.

Beginning this fall, undergraduates who enrolled in Cal U’s popular criminal justice major can specialize in forensic investigation or cyber forensics.

In the forensic investigation concentration, students apply their knowledge of forensic science to the complex task of investigating crime scenes. Building on their knowledge of criminal justice principles, forensic science and the law, students learn to utilize physical evidence – everything from fingerprints and body fluids to DNA evidence and computer data – to assist in solving crimes.

The cyber forensics concentration builds knowledge and skills for students with an interest in computer forensics and solving cybercrimes. Students learn to contribute to criminal investigations by undeleting files, restoring social media data, identifying encryption techniques, analyzing cellphone records and more. A strong background in criminal justice allows investigators to maintain the proper “chain of custody” as they uncover digital evidence.

Both concentrations provide advanced, hands-on training for practical problem-solvers with a passion for law enforcement and justice. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, students can anticipate a high demand for these specialized skills when they graduate and enter the workforce.

Cal U’s new programs include a blend of online and face-to-face courses. All classes are taught by highly qualified, full-time faculty members who bring top academic credentials and years of professional experience to the classroom.

For example, program coordinator Dr. Raymond Hsieh has consulted pro bono on the high-profile case of the so-called “Smiley Face Killer” and contributed to a textbook authored by one of the world’s most renowned forensic scientists, Dr. Henry Lee. However, Hsieh is perhaps best known on campus for creating realistic mock crime scenes that allow students to develop and demonstrate their skills.
