Student Outcome and Assessment

50 students graduated from the F&TC program over the period of May 2010-August 2017. The chart shows the post-graduation career path of our graduates. A majority of our students are employed as chemists in non-forensic science related laboratories. This category includes federal laboratories such as the EPA and FDA, toxicology positions in clinical laboratories, quality control laboratories, and the pharmaceutical industry. The forensic science related positions include Federal and State forensic science or toxicology laboratories. The graduate school category lists students who chose to go to advanced degrees immediately after graduation. Some students listed in other categories have also pursued graduate degrees while being employed or later in their career. These students are not counted in the graduate school category.
