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.

Those who have degrees will earn more based on their education as well as their ability to improve their career position over time.
