Founded in 1946, the Forensic Science Program at Michigan State University is the
oldest in the nation, and one of the most respected. It was among the first forensic
programs accredited by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences’ Forensic Science
Education Programs Accreditation Commission (FEPAC). The Forensic Biology Laboratory
undertakes a broad range of forensic research, historical studies, and casework.
The Laboratory also collaborates with the Michigan State Police Forensic Science
Division. Additionally, a large amount of other forensic expertise is present at
MSU, including chemistry, anthropology, pathology, entomology, biometrics, and more.
Giltner Hall houses the Forensic Biology Laboratory, and contains all labs necessary for teaching and research
