What you'll learn on the course
Develop a thorough knowledge of forensic crime scene investigation, police and criminal justice procedures, and key criminological theories on this wide-ranging course.
Bringing together criminology, forensic science, policing and law, this course will give you a broad basis of knowledge from which to build a career in fields such as forensic science, policing, criminology or intelligence.
There are core modules in forensic methods, management and investigation, UK law and the legal system, criminology, mass disasters, community safety and police investigation. During the final year you’ll explore more specialised aspects of investigation and crime, in your studies and through your major project.
You’ll learn in various ways, from lectures and seminars to practical sessions including laboratory-based work, role play and simulations. There’s a strong emphasis on developing the skills you’ll need to be effective in the professional workplace, whatever your job.
By the time you graduate you’ll have a sound knowledge of how to select and carry out forensic crime scene procedures accurately, safely and legally – producing high quality scientific evidence that the courts will accept.
You’ll also know your way around the criminal justice system and will be able to deal confidently and knowledgeably with forensic science colleagues, as well as with other agencies such as the police, courts and community partnerships.
This course will also teach you scientific writing and research methods, so you’ll be well-prepared if you’d like to continue your academic studies.
