The primary objective of the Forensic Chemistry P.S.M. is for students to develop a portfolio of knowledge and experiences through a strong background in analytical methodologies that will enable them to tackle problems in forensic chemistry, environmental chemistry, and other areas of chemistry. Other objectives include providing: a theoretical understanding of major concepts in Forensic Chemistry, a range of practical skills in Forensic Chemistry, and knowledge and skills applicable to academia, industry, and government. The goal of the program is the successful placement of graduates into relevant jobs and to enable career advancement for chemists already employed. The program includes core requirements in current topics in forensic chemistry; applied biopharmaceutics; data analysis; law, ethics, and policy; and toxicology. Attendance is required at annual symposia where leaders in the field of forensic science present on current topics and developments in the field of forensics and forensic chemistry. Many courses in the program are conducted as hands-on training in a modular, forensic chemistry laboratory. An independent project is assigned that will generate knowledge with the goal of developing advanced forensic skills, enabling program graduates to effectively work in and be leaders of the discipline of forensic chemistry. All students are required to complete a forensic chemistry internship. Accreditation: Temple University is fully accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Job Prospects: Official job placement is not offered, but prospects are good. The program is designed to help recent graduates obtain relevant employment as well as accelerate career advancement and/or allow career shift of currently employed professionals.
