The once very popular television series, Crime Scene Investigation, which aired from 2000 to 2015, has recently announced that it will finally be able to properly reward viewers for their years and years of investment in the field of Forensic Science.
In collaboration with Boston State University, a school well known for its exceptional forensics program, CSI will now be issuing an MS in Biomedical Forensic Sciences to any fan that has completed eight full seasons of the show.
“It’s about flipping time,” one fan said. “I could’ve gone to school for this, but I decided to, you know, not.”
The longtime running drama about a “team of forensic investigators trained to solve criminal cases by scouring the crime scene” has successfully created millions of more fully trained and capable investigators completely through the power of television.
“My mom always said I had a knack for solving the shows before the end,” revealed one recent graduate. “Sometimes I would even call it in the first scene – I don’t know, I guess that’s what they call police instincts. You either got it or you don’t.”
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans expressed relief after hearing the news.
“I’m happy they’re finally getting the right recognition,” Commissioner Evans said candidly. “We’ve had so many great tips throughout the years from people whose only credentials were that they had watched a CSI case similar to one we were investigating. Honestly, we wouldn’t know what to do without them.”
Upon hearing the news, a representative from Criminal Minds said that a Criminal Psychology degree program was currently in the works.
