Course description

Hull pioneered this popular area of study more than 30 years ago, and our research underpins the modules you study. Youâ??ll blend the theory surrounding crime and offending with the science of gathering and testing physical evidence from crime scenes. Youâ??ll explore the practical, ethical and scientific debates relating to crime and punishment and gain an understanding of the collection and processing of body chemistry and DNA evidence. If you don't have the academic qualifications to enter the programme directly, we also offer a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study. See our website for more information.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive – often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into. If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification – many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion – about one in 17 last year – of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Psychology, business and social studies are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The statistics here primarily reflect the prospects for forensic science graduates, as the largest group of students to study a forensic and archaeological science. While there are not a lot of jobs available in forensics itself just at the moment, reflected in the overall unemployment rates for forensic science graduates, there are still jobs for graduates from these subjects. Last year's graduates went into analysis work in labs, technician roles and general research, and for those looking a little wider, IT and management also employed forensics graduates. This is also a good subject for those wanting to work for the police, and if you do, it’s sometimes possible to get sponsorship, so that can be an option to fund your studies and get some relevant – and challenging - experience.
