Are you interested in understanding how forensic evidence is used to help solve crime?
This BSc (Hons) Criminology and Forensic Studies degree course examines the field of crime and criminality and pairs it with the world of forensic investigation. You’ll get a deep understanding of what makes a criminal, from a societal, psychological and law perspective. And you’ll get out of the classroom to get to grips with the latest forensic theory and practice.
This course leads to careers in areas such as research and intelligence analysis, crime scene investigation, and probation and police work.
