NMC transfer guide - MACRAO

To: Michigan State University - Main Campus

Program: Forensic Science - Masters Program

Forensic Science at MSU is a graduate level program specializing in the criminal investigation process in the criminal justice system. Students will learn techniques used in the analysis of physical evidence and may present this evidence in criminal and civil proceedings.

To be admitted to the Masters of Science program, students must have a Bachelors degree in a natural or physical science. Biology or chemistry degrees are recommended.


Completion of the courses in this guide will result in completion of an Associate of Science degree from NMC as well as facilitate transfer to many science programs at MSU. Specifying which particular science program you wish to transfer into allows us to target more exact science course requirements you will need.

Special Note: NMC highly recommends that one of your choices be either HST 111 or HST 112 U.S. History. Although it is not absolutely required, taking U.S. History eliminates having to take an integrated writing & humanities course at MSU. Without a U.S. History course, transfer students can expect to take IAH 201 at MSU.
