Programme

B.Sc Forensic Science

Overview
The B.Sc Forensic Science programme is a four year degree programme aimed at training students to take up careers in forensic and investigative sciences. Students take an average of six modules per semester. This programme is a blend of modules from biological sciences, physical sciences and legal studies. We adopt a student-centered approach to deliver the curriculum of the programme. The programme incorporates Professional field experience (Practicum) sessions to expose students to current standards and practice.

In order to increase the competence of graduates of the B.Sc Forensic Science programme and make them more competitive, the Department has adopted an internationalization approach where students are encouraged to embark on mobility programmes to developed countries. Internationalization of the programme is intended at enriching the lives of graduates and increasing their marketability and competitiveness on the job market, while exposing them to new learning environments.
