Forensic and Analytical Science is a specialisation within the Bachelor of Science. This specialisation is also available within the 4 year Bachelor of Science (Honours).
It is available in 2 streams:
- Forensic and Analytical Chemistry: combining the practice of analytical chemistry with the application of forensic investigation
- Forensic Biology: using aspects of life sciences to examine biological material in a forensic context.
Both streams combine studies in chemistry and biology with related sciences such as necessary mathematical and computer skills required to process and analyse data, and a thorough grounding in industrial practice and the relevant areas of our legal system.
There is also a strong focus on developing your oral and written communication skills, interpersonal skills and ability to work independently or as part of a team - all of which are highly regarded by employers.
