There are many careers that you can become with a chemistry degree, such as a pharmacologist and learn how drugs are properly used for or even a toxicologist who research potential harm caused by chemical to help establish regulations to protect the public. Being a forensic scientist is to be believed as being a hero due to the fact that how much help you can do in cases. This job has a great salary but many it has many different work hours and is a cutthroat job. There are plenty of benefits and standards to becoming a forensic scientist.
I believe that optimism is a value I hold that will help me in my career as a Forensic/Criminal Psychologist.
I’ve always heard that the hardest majors are STEM majors, and that they require a lot of time and dedication. Of course, I chose to become apart of the STEM program. However, I was not scared because my love for math and science is incredible. I am majoring in chemistry. I once was very uncertain about what career I wanted to pursue, but after many years I am more than sure what I want to do. With my Bachelor’s degree I plan to become a forensic scientist. I pondered on many careers before I decided on forensic science.
Hello, My Name is Danielle Odom and I am a freshman at Valdosta State University. I want to be a forensic psychologist. For starters, I have always known that I wanted to do something that dealt with psychology due to my family’s “mental” state. It was not until my 11th grade year that I realized I had a passion for forensic psychology. There are a multitude of reasons why I want to enter into this career. Aside from the fact that forensic psychologists are financially taken care of, they also are able to get to the root of major crimes by talking to convicted felons and seeing why they committed the crime, this very sentence alone is the main reason why I want to enter into this field. Forensic psychologists are able to ask questions like:
Another component of the Criminal Justice system is corrections. One of the jobs that the correction has is a parole agent. The goal for a parole agent is to protect the public. The responsibility for a parole agent is to assist ex- offenders so that they can adjust to life in a save and free community. They are also responsible to prevent future criminal acts. They help the people become a better person so that they can have a productive and normal live. Parole agents supervise the offenders who had been released from prison. (Careers in criminal, 2006)
For as long as I can remember, I have had an interest in science. When I was younger, I had always wanted to learn about animals, as well as the natural world around me. Today, I am no different, and expect that my passion for science will remain consistent throughout my future. I would like to pursue a career in the biotechnology field because I have developed a specific interest in forensic science during my high school career. I have already been taking steps in order to prepare myself for a career as a forensic scientist, as I am currently in the biotechnology program at North Point High School. The biotechnology program has given me a deeper insight to what kind of careers one can pursue in the biotechnology field, as well as a good foundation of knowledge that I will apply in my career. In addition to being in the biotechnology program, I am enrolled in accelerated science classes, and am planning to graduate high school with twelve science credits.
Since I can remember I always wanted to work in the medical field. I started of wanting to become a Pediatrician, sort after that I wanted to become a Neurosurgeon, then a Forensic Anthropologist which then sparked my interest in Forensic Pathology soon after. After the idea of becoming a Forensic Pathologist circled my mind I couldn't stop questioning myself what steps I had to take in order to follow this career path. That's when I found out that I had to attend Medical School in order to follow this career. There are so many paths you can take in order to go to Medical School, for instance you can major in Pre-Med, Biomedical, Biology, Physics, Forensic Science, and so on. That's when I discovered Forensic Science as a major, and my love
Forensic science is the use of scientific knowledge and technology to help solve criminal investigations, and provide evidence that is used in a trial. Any person who helps a lawyer or any kind of law enforcement by testing physical evidence is known as a forensic scientist (Frith 4). Forensic scientist can also be known as forensic science technicians, crime lab analyst, or other titles that may reflect a specific area (Echaore-McDavid and McDavid 28). People who are forensic scientists deal with gruesome scenes on a daily basis, and are at a higher risk of depression than most. Most people in this field love the thrill of solving crimes and catching criminals.
In four years I want to be happy. I don't want to be stressed out about whats going to happen. I want to be prepared.
Forensic science, the application of sciences such as chemistry, physics, computer science, biology, and their relationships with the matters of law. The field can help the investigators understand many of the fields of science, from blood spatter patterns, to drug and trace evidence, and to determine the identity of unknown individual(s). Forensic science has a very important role in the criminal justice system. Forensics science provides scientifically based information from the analysis of physical evidence to help convict and or protect someone of wrongdoing. An expansive field with many jobs available from being a forensic toxicologist to working in the arson crime lab but to me the career in forensic science that interests me the most
Bloodstain Pattern Analyst: Analyze patterns in blood in order to identify important clues about various crimes. Bloodstain pattern analysts can help determine the type of weapon used, who the primary suspect was, whether a struggle occurred or not, and the direction the victim and or suspect was traveling at that time.
The first careers that I’m going to be discussing is a forensic pathologist, which is actually something that I intend to pursue after school. A forensic pathologist is someone who perform autopsies and determine the cause and the manner of a death, disease, or injury to people who die unexpectedly, suddenly, or violently. They also determine whether the death is a homicide, suicide, accidental, natural or unknown(forensicscolleges.com). Forensic Pathologists are educated as physicians and licensed to practice medicine in the state that they are employed(explorehealthcareers.org). They have to be certified by the ABP with a subspecialty in forensic pathology. Getting certified can take between four and five years.
Forensic Science refers to the application of environment, a forensic Technician specializes in the natural, physical and some of the social science of the investigation of the crime. Forensic science has the medical, laboratory and the field services that we need to gather information. Collecting, preserving and examining and analyzing evidence for court is a huge part of the forensic technician. For example in the laboratory the forensic technician will do a variety of things like, Identify and classify crime scene evidence through scientific analysis, explore possible links between suspects and criminal activity using the results of chemical and physical analyses, consult with experts in related or specialized fields, such as toxicology,
The career field of forensics is a very diverse and broad field to get into too. Studying criminal justice doesn’t mean one is going to be a police officer, criminal justice can branch into many other specialized jobs. In my case, I would like to minor in criminal justice, then branch off and get a bachelors degree in psychology and become a forensic psychologist. I would like to work with the behavioral analysis unit and work with the FBI.
Everyone has a dream job, whether it's a movie star, singer, dancer, fireman, etc. Everyone starts choosing their career from a young age. Some studies have shown that most kids start thinking about serious career choices by age 10. I’ve known what I wanted to be since the first grade, a forensic scientist. A forensic scientist is the application of science to criminal and civil laws during a criminal investigation. I grew up watching crime shows, and being told to start preparing for my future. I have always been fascinated by science and knowledge, but I was never sure what exactly I was interested in. Until one day, I really thought about my interest and started piecing things together, I then realized forensic science was the perfect subject
