Classes in these areas include: Genetics, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, and various classes in our Criminal Justice program which has been named one of the best in the state of Virginia.

Another great thing about Bluefield College is that your advisor will be a professor from your major. This means that before you are able to choose classes for the next semester, you will be meeting with a professor that you have on a weekly basis. You will also have the opportunity to talk to him or her about potential internships, jobs, or graduate school options. Jobs and internships held by former Bluefield College students can be found on the Bluefield College Forensic Science Major webpage – please utilize this tool. It’s very useful!

Just like the rest of the academic programs here at Bluefield College, you will find professors that are passionate about what they teach and also integrating their faith into the classroom.

Dr. Joseph Saunders, Chairman of the Chemistry Department (where many of your Forensic Science classes will focus) and advisor for the program states on the Bluefield College website that he “encourages students as they ponder careers in science to apply one of his favorite verses – Romans 1:20 – For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.”
