The Center for Forensic Science Research & Education in Willow Grove
The Center is a non-profit foundation committed to providing education in the forensic sciences. We provide continuing professional development for forensic scientists, including testimony skills development, forensic information science tools, cross-discipline training, updates, and strategies and training in forensic science principles for attorneys, police, and court officers. The Center provides facilities with state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation and supports grant-funded research and academic scholarship.
We provide the resources and focus to teach the forensic science related content of Arcadia University's MSFS program. Arcadia's full time staff and adjunct faculty possess a wide variety of expertise and backgrounds, including private laboratory experience, government, field specialists, and practicing attorneys. Our Master's Degree in Forensic Science ensures students have the science coursework required for a successful career in forensic science.
We impart high quality training to students, allowing them familiarize themselves with the process of working on a multidisciplinary team so as to offer patient-centric care and evidence collection for victims of sexual crimes. Students are made aware of the laws associated with sexual assault and learn skills related to photography, evidence collection, as well as interviewing techniques and care of sexual assault victims.
