    Hi
    I also want to become an 'CSi', now I just to find this site where you can find all universitys and colleges in the world where you can study Forensic science. I can't find it anymore, but I found an other website that could maybe help you. I already found the perfect university for me, but that's in Great-Britain, so maybe not so good for you. I do remember that there definitely were some universities in Canada where you can study it. Check this link: CSI

    Crime Scene Examiner - You will work whenever and wherever crime occurs, indoors or outdoors, day or night, and have to be able to deal with dead bodies and other messy situations but there certainly is a lot less routine. The pay is not great but few folk voluntarily leave a crime scene section for other duties. The intellectual challenge is still there and the scientific basis of the field is developing. Some tasks will become more routine and more sophisticated but overall it could be an exciting time for the next decade. The crime scene examiner should have a bachelor's degree either in a natural science with emphasis in law enforcement and crime scene processing or a criminal justice degree with emphasis in natural science. Currently some state agencies have such a requirement and I believe that most agencies soon will. Forensic archeology would be excellent preparation. A listing below (following the Table of Courses) outlines a suggested approach for someone interested in doing more than just picking up stuff at a crime scene. Another approach is to combine crime scene investigation and psychology for the job now known as psychological profiling. (See below.)

    Verify the job market. Might be fine but there has been a large jump in folks taking to this career due to the various TV shows - which could lead to a flooded job market. Or not. Check it out.
