Digital Media and Animation Minor

The emphasis of this minor is to expand the current job opportunities of BS graduates of the Forensics Science Technology curriculum housed in the Physical and Life Sciences department. Currently graduates will be well prepared for forensic scientist positions in crime laboratories or employment in any laboratory-based enterprise which employs biological and chemical technologies. Students can specialize in DNA fingerprinting, genetic analysis and microbiology, as well as physicochemical analysis and identification of drugs, fibers, soils, glass, and other types of evidence. This is primarily laboratory work. The proposed Digital Media and Animation (DMA) minor will allow the graduate to become more involved with the “crime scene” by having the capability of recreating it with computer animation and being an expert witness in court.
