National Center for Media Forensics

National Center for Media Forensics

​"Sometimes facts lie right in front of us like puzzle pieces, waiting to be put together."

Media forensics is scientific study into the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of audio, video, and image evidence obtained during the course of investigations and litigious proceedings. 

The National Center for Media Forensics (NCMF) is an education and research center of the University of Colorado Denver, College of Arts & Media, Music & Entertainment Industry Studies Department and was created with the assistance of the Department of Justice including the National Institute of Justice and the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

Key goals of the NCMF are to:

  • Provide a world-class Master's degree program.

  • Provide continuing education opportunities for law enforcement and private forensic scientists.

  • Conduct basic and applied research.
