Forensic career ?

Chloe,

Hi there. I am a Forensic Serologist. That means that I do DNA analysis and body fluid id on crime evidence. You want to do Toxicology or Pathology? To be a Forensic Pathologist you need an MD and then post-grad work to become a specalist. It is about 10-12 years of higher education. And yes, alot of math. If you want to be a toxicologist, a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry or Biochemistry would suffice, which includes about a year of calculus, at least in the United States.
