As the flagship university in the Commonwealth, the University of Kentucky provides the only Master of Forensic Toxicology and Analytical Genetics (or degree of comparable nature) in the state and it is only the fifth such professional master's degree in the field of forensics in the nation.
Through a common core curriculum, students in both concentrations will graduate with a skill set in advanced forensic science, writing, communication, professionalism, ethics, legal perspectives, and workplace-specific skills.
Through a rigorous targeted finishing curriculum in either concentration, including two internship experiences, the graduates will be competitive for workforce deployment in the areas of:
- Private Industry Drug Testing
- Private DNA Analysis
- Forensic Governmental Divisions
- Hospital clinical labs
