Is your passion to work in crime labs, universities, hospitals, criminal investigation departments of banks, forensic science laboratories, private investigation agencies, and the like? Our Forensics & Criminal Psychology course will introduce you to approaches in understanding crime, mental disorders and their relationship to crime; as well as the science of evidence collection, and how this evidence is analysed.
In part 1 will teach you about why people commit crimes, There are many different theories and approaches to understanding the origins of criminal behaviour. These range from social learning theories to labelling theory and individual differences. It is important to understand different theories in order to nurture a broad understanding of how crime is conceptualised. Once this is in place you can better understand the thoughts and behaviours of criminals and people who cross the boundary of what is considered acceptable in society.
In part 2 you will learn the relationship between modern science, law and solving crimes as well as learning specific techniques, gathering evidence, the use of scientific principles and more. You will also learn the principles and methods of traditional sciences as well as specific forensic science techniques such as anthropometry, fingerprinting, and blood stain analysis. Evidence gathered using scientific principles is prepared for submission in courts where it must be presented impartially, and the ultimate test is how well it stands up in court.
Introduction to Forensics provides students with a broad and comprehensive overview of how forensics is used in the criminal justice system. You will develop an understanding of how forensic science and the law work together to solve crime. The science of evidence collection, and how this evidence is analysed, are also covered in this course. . In addition, you will study criminal profiling, presenting evidence in courtrooms, and how ethical issues can affect the use of forensics in criminal cases. Read more below.
