MSc Forensic Science
This course concentrates on the practices, procedures and analytical techniques of forensic science, and how they are applied in support of the investigation of crime and the criminal justice system as a whole.
Specialist modules concentrate on developing your understanding and skills across a wide range of techniques covering forensic biology, forensic chemistry, crime scene science, drugs and toxicology.
Employment opportunities exist in the field of forensic science and forensic investigation with forensic science providers and law enforcement agencies. Other roles include scientific investigation where the application of science in a legal or regulatory context is important.
On each master's degree you'll complete a project related to professional practice. This, along with the involvement of practitioners and academics in the delivery of these courses, ensures that they are relevant to the requirements of the criminal justice system.
Our master's degrees can lead to the award of a postgraduate certificate at Stage 1 (60 credits - 3 modules), a postgraduate diploma at Stage 2 (120 credits - 6 modules) or, on completion of a research project, the MSc.
