MidAmerica Nazarene University
Forensic Biology is the application of biology research to law enforcement—the analysis and presentation of biological evidence in the criminal court system.

The Facts

As a forensic biology student at MNU, you’ll take challenging courses in chemistry and biology, supported by plenty of hands-on experience in the laboratory. And since solving crimes isn’t just about what happens beneath the microscope but also what happens in the courtroom, you’ll also develop an understanding of the ethical and legal issues involved in forensic investigation.

Small lab sizes ensure that you have plenty of opportunity to conduct hands-on experiments and gain experience with lab technology and techniques—beginning your freshman year!

Internships for forensic biology students are completed at local law enforcement crime labs giving you real-world experience beyond the classroom.

"My favorite class so far is most definitely Microbiology. I loved working in the lab, and it was so interesting to see that there is so much more to this world than what meets the eye. You never realize it until you view it from a microscopic angle!"

“We’re learning about God’s natural world. There is nothing in the biology program that doesn’t relate to God. I want to help students see the beauty of nature, get outdoors, observe and contemplate. We get inspired together.”

Gary Andersen, PhD
