BSc (Hons) Forensic Sciences and Criminal Investigation
This programme has been specifically designed for young talents who aim to work in the Forensic Sciences field (Criminalistics) and, more generally, as Forensic Investigations Experts.
Forensic Sciences are traditionally described as the application of scientific methodologies and technologies to criminal investigations. However, over the past two decades, the field of forensic science has become key in matters of civil law, insurance companies and private businesses. This has led to the search for qualified professionals capable of bringing necessary knowledge, skills and competences to the table in order to carry out a forensic investigation, even in circumstances with no criminal relevance.
