About Forensic Science at Sheffield Hallam University

Forensic study is increasingly popular in universities and a forensic approach is often used in the workplace. This course gives you science skills and knowledge related to forensic investigation. You gain an understanding of the legal issues in forensic study. A third of your study involves improving your knowledge of the legal system. Science is always studied in a legal context. And through your laboratory work you develop a sophisticated understanding of various analytical techniques. You can choose which areas of forensic science you wish to develop with option modules that look at various areas of investigation and associated techniques. One option module is called drugs of abuse, which looks at how to identify elicit drugs in various contexts. Another is fire arms and explosives, where you study ballistics and how explosion damage is used to gain an understanding of the type of explosive used. You do a dissertation research project which develops your analytical skills under the supervision of an academic tutor. There are four other forensic courses available. They are all designed to meet a wide range of individual needs and expectations. Each course complements your degree study or previous work experience.
