Transferring to the Forensic Science Program?

Many students elect to begin their college careers at the Kentucky Community and Technical Colleges System, KCTCS.  Below are two transfer guides for our B.S. Forensic Science (Biology and Chemistry Option) based on the upcoming fall, 2015 catalog at EKU and KCTCS.

Forensic Science Crime Scene House

EKU has now devoted one of their additional properties to the Forensic Science Program for use as a Crime Scene House. The house is located at 330 University Drive, just on the edge of the main campus. It will allow the program to expand coursework and lab experience into crime scene processing; including documentation and evidence detection, collection and packaging.

Meet Dr. Jamie Fredericks

Dr. Jamie Fredericks is our new assistant professor in forensic biology. Although a British national, Dr. Fredericks has arrived from Cape Town, South Africa. During his time in South Africa, Dr. Fredericks was employed as a post-doctoral scientist at the University of the Western Cape.

Special Thanks

Dr. Diane Vance, the second Director of EKU's Forensic Science program will be transitioning into a new role at the end of the spring term. While serving as Director, she has continued to improve the Forensic Science program by acquiring new microscopes and instrumentation, recommending curriculum changes and adding faculty positions.
