You'll need a four year college degree, then four years of medical school to become a doctor, then a specialty in pathology.

A pathologist is a scientist who interprets and diagnoses change in body tissues, fluids and and organs, as in, for example, a post-mortem examination: the extensive investigation after death of the cause of that death. Forensics is applying scientific methods to the investigation of crime, or in order to give evidence in court cases. So a forensic pathologist investigates and reports on the means by which a person has died of disease, or been injured or killed in order to assist a criminal investigation or prosecution. Forensics are not confined to personal injury cases; forensic investigation covers the checking of evidence such as DNA, fingerprints, and so on. We also employ forensic accountants, archaeologists and so on. The word comes from the Latin for forum, in the sense of a court or tribunal.

There are no schools specifically for weapon's science. However, a person may major in forensic science with a concentration in the physics that goes along with weaponry. From there, a person may become an expert.
