In the Forensic Science course we will examine the fascinating subject of Forensic Science. Forensic science can be simply defined as the application of science to the law. In criminal cases forensic scientists are often involved in the search for, and examination of, physical traces which might be useful for establishing or excluding an association between someone suspected of committing a crime and the scene of the crime or victim.
Such traces commonly include blood and other body fluids, hairs, textile fibres from clothing etc., materials used in buildings such as paint and glass, footwear, tool and tyre marks, flammable substances used to start fires and so on. This fascinating subject provides a host of exciting career opportunities for those who are appropriately qualified and motivated.
In the Forensic Psychology Diploma course we will adopt a research perspective to forensic psychology, beginning with a brief introduction to research methodologies followed by a very basic introduction to statistics for research.
The Forensic Psychology course then examines the psychology of violent crime and gives the student the opportunity to conduct their own research into the links between a particular mental disorder of their choice, and violent crime.
