Glenn feels the strongest attribute of the Forensic Science and Law Program is the quality of the instructors. “Every course was taught by a seasoned, experienced expert in that specific course of study. The high quality of the instructors allowed the students to go beyond the words in the textbook and allowed for a true understanding of the material.” Another benefit of the program for Glenn was that he was able to perform undergraduate research which exposed him to how the scientific process works.
