If you've ever wondered what lies behind the yellow "Police Line - Do Not Cross" tape, your calling might be in forensics as a crime scene investigator. While you'll likely spend far more time in the lab than at an actual crime scene, forensic science is a crucial component of the criminal justice system. Forensics and crime scene degree programs often teach students to collect, identify, classify, and analyze evidence for criminal investigations. Some areas of focus might include ballistics, fingerprinting, handwriting, and biochemistry. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, forensic science technicians have an average annual salary of $47,680.
