I know someone coming out of Tennessee. It is a very good program -
however Bill Bass is no lolnger there & the deprtment has no money for
students (ie. assistantships etc.) Also - A terminal master's is useless
as far as forensics is concerned (this is straight from folks who are
there) - it is much better to keep with it and get a PhD. I was told it
carried more weight & credibility. A masters in forensics is a "glorified
medical examiner's aide".
