Accreditation of Forensic Science Education Programs

Students considering a degree in forensic science will want to be sure to keep an eye on the list of colleges and universities that have been accredited by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) Forensic Science Education Programs Accreditation Commission (FEPAC). Currently there are 35 undergraduate and graduate programs on the list, which was updated in August.

The mission of FEPAC is to maintain and to enhance the quality of forensic science education through a formal evaluation and recognition of college-level academic programs. The primary function of the Commission is to develop and to maintain standards and to administer an accreditation program that recognizes and distinguishes high quality undergraduate and graduate forensic science programs.
