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.

On this degree course, you'll:

  • Explore criminology while using the latest forensic facilities in one of the largest criminology departments in the country
  • Have access to a biology lab and a forensic crime scene examination house
  • Work alongside crime and forensics professionals via our partnerships with bodies including Hampshire Constabulary and Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service
  • Tailor your degree to match your interests and workplace ambitions
  • Learn from criminology, probation and policing experts and interact with practitioners from criminal justice agencies, businesses and charitable organisations
  • Go on visits to relevant destinations, like the fingerprint bureau, Fort Cumberland or a mortuary
  • Attend guest talks from career specialists, such as fire investigators and forensic odontologists.
