Computer Forensics

I really want to get into Computer Forensics. Would Latin or Greek be as important then. I am going to take technology in high school.

Hi there.

I went to college in the UK and studied A-Levels.

I did A-Levels in Biology, Psychology, General Studies, and English Literature as well as AS Levels in Maths and Chemistry. I also studied for a certificate in Human Rights and a diploma in Bioethics and I feel that these courses prepared me well for my degree course in Forensic Science.

I agree with the other people who have posted a strong background in Sciences and Maths is very important, but you should also look at courses such as general studies which increase your understanding of the way the world works as a lot of Forensic work involves understanding how circumstances change and how situations develop.

A lot of terminology used in forensics particularly when it comes to the bio-chemical aspects is Greek or Latin, so some study of language may be a valuable asset in helping you to better pick up and understand this terminology.

I wish you all the best in your studies.

It is never too early to start planning ahead. Be sure to take as many science and math classes now as you can stand! Then in college, be sure to major in a physical science like Biology. What do you want to specalize in? DNA/Serology, Fingerprints, Pathology, Toxicology, General Criminalistics?
