Interested in working crime scenes? Technical advances have made the role of the forensic scientist increasingly important in crime investigation, but also in other areas including archaeology. This course offers a unique mix of science and psychology, involving practical laboratory work and experience in crime scene processing using our Crime Scene Room, as well as lectures. An introduction to sciences and psychology is followed by more detailed applied forensics, including the role of the forensic scientist at the crime scene and preparation of evidence for court. The underpinning science behind forensics will also be taught including pathology, physiology and haematology and how they relate to forensic biology. You will also study recent advances in DNA analysis, toxicology, psychology, as well as fire and explosive analysis.
