You can use this degree to become an assistant with a crime lab or a medical examiner, although further education will usually be required. The courses that you will take to obtain this degree include subjects like chemistry, biology, biochemistry, natural science, math, and specialty studies like entomology, anthropology, and other courses.

An associate degree in forensics will be right for you if you are looking for a great stepping stone to begin a career in forensics with the potential for future growth. You should check out the education requirements for your specific area of interest at our career page for forensic sciences and computer forensics.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, an associate degree will allow you to earn about $8,000 more on average than those who only have a high school diploma. In a lifetime, those earnings will average out to be about 50% higher than if you had not attended a higher education program at all. Those who have degrees will earn more based on their education as well as their ability to improve their career position over time.
