MNS in Applied Chemistry
The MNS in Applied Chemistry at Southeast Missouri State University is designed to give students broad exposure to the instruments, techniques, and methods favored by today's forensic, environmental, industrial, and research labs. The forensic option emphasizes laboratory skills and modern instrumentation used by forensic scientists. These instruments are used to identify and characterize physical and biological evidence obtained by law enforcement. Chemical analysis is normally required for most cases submitted to crime labs, especially those involving drugs, murder, arson, rape, and criminal use of firearms.
The course offerings, internship, and research experience work together to make the MNS an APPLIED degree.
