Forensic Anthropology is an option in years one and two and involves the study of the skeletal remains in order to determine a profile of a deceased individual as well as aspects of decomposition and burial.
The School of Forensic and Applied Sciences is vibrant, friendly, diverse and busy, and houses a wealth of staff experience. We were the first UK department to have a dedicated crime scene simulation house and now have three properties representing different scenarios. We have an extensive skeletal collection, comprised from both teaching specimens and archaeological material; and our final year students always organise one of the best graduation balls in the university!
There are several opportunities to get experience either in the voluntary sector or through placements at a number of laboratories and workplaces.
If you are interested in a police career, we encourage you to join the Special Constable service. Those thinking of a laboratory career may wish to explore links with local hospital laboratories for work experience and within the School there are several student internships available each year that will allow you to get involved in a novel research project and gain experience of working within a research environment. Archaeologists within the School of Forensic & Investigative Sciences regularly run digs and those with an interest in Archaeology and Anthropology may want to participate and get additional field-work experience.
Our courses are an excellent basis for employment in this competitive sector. Our graduates are at work in all sorts of forensic science settings - as crime scene investigators, police officers, scientific support personnel and intelligence analysts, at home and overseas.
