Forensic Science School Related Question

Hi! I have always been interested in science but for some reason, I decided to pursue a bachelor's in psychology rather than biology or forensic science.

Now, I would like to go into forensic science (specifically, I would like to work in a crime lab) but am not sure if I should go for a second bachelor's degree or a master's degree. I completed my bachelor's degree about a year ago so I am sure at least gen eds would transfer to a second bachelor's degree but am not sure if that is the way to go.

I do not have a science background (in college or otherwise) and if I decide to go for a master's degree, I would need to complete a year of undergraduate prereqs in science courses. Any education related suggestions are welcome!

Thank you for your time.
