This program provides students with the background necessary for transfer into a four-year institution’s forensic science program. Its combination of science, math, criminal justice and general studies courses was developed in close collaboration with Towson University, University of Baltimore and Stevenson University. The courses listed below are specifically for transfer to the University of Baltimore. Students who wish to transfer to other institutions should contact an advisor at that institution prior to taking courses at Carroll.
