Kate Wilson, a Keiser University Port St. Lucie campus alumna, recently returned to campus to present to Criminal Justice program students. Now a Crime Scene Investigator at the Fort Pierce Police Department, the Forensic Investigations major was able to share insights into real-world experience and practices.

“The small class sizes, highly educated professors and hands-on applications were able to provide me with the foundation I needed to achieve not only my degree goals but also my desired career path. I was able to enter the Crime Scene Investigators position with the knowledge and confidence necessary to perform my civil duties and serve my community. I am proud to be a Keiser University Alumna,” she said.

Keiser University’s Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice provides preparation in many areas of the criminal justice system. Topics include but are not limited to: deviant behavior, forensics, law enforcement and investigation, victimology, private security, corrections and juvenile justice and how components work together and are governed by our laws, the Supreme Court and the U.S. Constitution. This exploration of the American criminal justice system culminates with an emphasis on research, analysis and the future of the system.

Keiser University’s Bachelor of Science degree in Forensic Investigations (Investigations Concentration) prepares students with competencies in the collection, preservation, and analysis of physical evidence for presentation in legal proceedings. The program provides students with the skills required to recognize relevant scientific information discoverable through forensic analysis of various types of physical evidence. Oral and written communications regarding the results of investigations and forensic analysis is also emphasized.
