College degrees can be obtained at the associate, bachelor's, or master's level.

Some bachelor's degrees in forensics, as well as those in other sciences (such as biology and biochemistry) offer a forensic science specialty. Though hands-on lab work is required, many career colleges offer hybrid programs that allow students to do significant portions of their coursework online.
