EWU Introduces New Program

Edward Waters University (EWU) received formal notification from its accrediting body, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), authorizing the university to offer a new Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Forensic Science.  The university plans to begin enrolling students in this exciting new academic degree program beginning in fall 2022. Traditionally, EWU has offered the B.A. degree program in Criminal Justice (with a concentration in Forensic Investigation) which has held strong interest amongst students and shown consistent enrollment and programmatic growth over the years. Accordingly, the university’s faculty and administration resolved to develop this new market relevant stand-alone degree program in Forensic Science to further expand EWU’s academic profile and meet student demand while simultaneously supporting future enrollment growth. The all-new Forensic Science program will train graduates to enter the workforce as criminalists, crime scene investigators, and forensic DNA analysts in crime laboratories at the federal, state, and local levels. “We hope that the onboarding and implementation of this new degree program will enhance the readiness and overall competitiveness of EWU students who wish to pursue career paths in the burgeoning field of forensic science,” said EWU Professor of Forensic Science and Director of the Forensic Science Program, Mr. Ricardo Yanis.
