This course runs in 2016/17.
This course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills relevant to the study of human biology and applies rigorous scientific techniques to the forensic investigation of a range of criminal offences. This can help prepare you for a career in a variety of biology and forensic roles.
This course could lead you into a lifelong fascination with human biology and the scientific investigation of crime. You will learn all about human physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology/genetics, microbiology and how each of these disciplines can be applied in forensic science.
If you choose this course you will benefit from:
- help applying for both long (full year) and short placement opportunities and also the chance to undertake project and other research work alongside our academic staff or with the many external organisations we have links with;
- experienced teaching staff who bring professional or research expertise into their teaching;
- strong research links with Key Forensic Services Ltd and LGC Forensics LTD;
- hands-on experience of a range of techniques in biology and forensic science in modern, well equipped laboratories;
- combined study of human biology with applications of forensic analysis, thus providing graduates with a wide range of career options;
- an applied “Crime Scene to Court” approach which really helps you to understand forensics and the need to methodically collect samples, analyse them and present the results to the standard required by the courts.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Throughout the duration of your course, you will cover key study and research skills and, in addition, you will study forensic science, genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, microbiology and human physiology.
This is a varied and very applied course, which aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills to enter a wide range of graduate careers, as well as postgraduate studies. Laboratory work is a substantial component of the course, enabling you to learn a wide range of techniques in modern, well-equipped laboratories and help you to develop the key experimental, data handling and reporting skills required in forensic and biological careers.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
