Forensic Science is the application of all areas of science to assist law enforcement agencies to detect criminal activity and to support the legal system to make just decisions where scientific evidence is presented in a court of law. You will be introduced to a wide range of scientific disciplines that are involved in the detection of criminal activity.
You will be provided with theoretical and practical training covering crime scene science, toxicology, chemistry and molecular biology. This course draws on the School’s international reputation for forensic archaeology, anthropology, genocide investigation and toxicology.
This course has been designed to be one of the most relevant and modern forensic science degrees on offer. A recent theme at international conferences has been mass disasters and therefore this BSc (Hons) Forensic Science course has been designed realising that many forensic investigators work on tsunami, earthquake, genocide or mass transport cases rather than typical crime scenes.
