The Forensic Science undergraduate degree program is one component of a concurrent degree program. Students must declare an appropriate major* in addition to Forensic Science. Students will satisfy all requirements in an existing undergraduate program at UCO and, at the same time, complete requirements for a concurrent degree in Forensic Science. There are two primary mechanisms for earning the Forensic Science degree:

(A) To earn a degree in Forensic Science, students must satisfy all requirements in an existing undergraduate program at UCO and concurrently complete 30 - 36 required hours in one of the Forensic Science Program tracks. In addition, students earning a concurrent degree must complete a minimum of 139 credit hours with 30 unique hours in each major. Students earning a concurrent degree will receive two diplomas.

(B) A student possessing an appropriate undergraduate degree can obtain an additional degree in Forensic Science by meeting the admission standards at UCO and completing 30-36 hours in one of the Forensic Science Program tracks.

*General Studies, Interdisciplinary Studies, Multidisciplinary Studies or similar degrees are not allowed to be the concurrent degree or first degree when pursuing a degree in Forensic Science at UCO.

 Please see your academic advisor for detailed information regarding concurrent degree and second degree requirements.
