Forensic Science

Forensic science is the application of knowledge to answer criminal law decisions involving science.  The interest in forensic science had grown significantly in recent years and to increased media coverage and popular TV programmes.  The introduction to Forensic Science course will help you gain a thorough understanding of relevant aspects of crime scene examination, human anatomy and physiology, as well as an introduction to the world of forensics.

By the end of the course you will have a good understanding of some of the processes involved in forensic science from the crime scene to the courtroom.  You will also have developed a range of skills associated with retrieving and interpreting information from a variety of sources.  At the end of the course you will be given a case study and other information about a particular crime or crimes to analyse the processes and results.
