Arcadia University’s Master’s in Forensic Science program and the Center for Forensic Science Research & Education are hosting the Second Annual Forensic Science Forum on Friday, Nov. 2, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 3, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Stiteler Auditorium, Murphy Hall. Registration is required. Admission is free and open to the public.
The forum is divided into two days and features a diverse range of forensic topics presented by a variety of experts from around the United States. The goal of the forum is not only to educate students and faculty interested in forensic science, but also to facilitate interaction between the academic and professional communities.
The first day consists entirely of lectures from forensic experts. The second day concludes the lectures, featuring two Arcadia University alumni, and finishes with an optional tour of the Arcadia campus for any interested attendees. Information about Arcadia’s Forensic Science program will be made available for prospective students on both days.
