There is an emphasis on developing practical skills to ensure you’re ready for the workplace within a variety of scientific sectors. You’ll gain an insight into the techniques used to analyse crime scenes and forensic evidence, study supporting sciences such as cellular and molecular biology, organic, physical and analytical chemistry, plus psychology and the law in relation to crime.
