The GW Department of Forensic Sciences is a home for investigators. Established more than 50 years ago, we are proud to be one of the oldest forensic sciences programs in the country. In addition to completing rigorous coursework, students also participate in cutting-edge research alongside expert faculty who regularly receive federal grants and present at prestigious meetings like the American Academy of Forensic Science.
