About

The Forensic Investigation (Hons) program of the Plymouth Marjon University readies you to apply science to crime scene investigation. You'll understand the part forensic science plays in the criminal justice system and learn how to control, preserve, record, and recover evidence from a crime scene or other incidents.

Overview

Course Summary

You'll study crime, develop the skills required for crime scene investigation and the seizure of evidence, learn the forensic science techniques for testing physical evidence from crime scenes in the laboratory, write a witness statement for court and give evidence or oral testimony in a mock court setting.

The Forensic Investigation (Hons) program of the Plymouth Marjon University blends theory with practice in the forms of research and 'real life' case studies.

You'll also examine crime in the context in which it happens in the local, national and international arenas. On campus you'll have access to realistic, simulated environments including a well-equipped forensic laboratory and a crime scene house, in which you'll get authentic experience of collecting and analysing evidence from simulated domestic crime scenes.

What might you become?

Career options include working as a crime scene investigator with police forces, or as a forensic examiner in forensic laboratories, police laboratories, hospital laboratories or government testing departments.

In addition graduates will be equipped for roles in scientific research including university research departments and other public sector services. They may also work for private companies that deal with specialised areas, such as fire investigation and forensic defence work.
