Forensic Science at Lincoln


Forensic science requires skills and knowledge to work in a variety of workplace settings including laboratories, crime scenes, and courtrooms. These enable the forensic scientist to apply scientific expertise in criminal investigations. Our Forensic Science programme addresses the demand for expertise in forensic science tasks, including crime scene investigation, physical evidence collection, sample analysis and defence of testimony. This rigorous programme incorporates a comprehensive spectrum of subjects and provides a foundation in laboratory work, advanced chemical and biological analysis, and data interpretation.

Whilst studying at Lincoln you have the opportunity to cultivate your own specialisms, with areas including forensic drug analysis, fire debris analysis, DNA and other biological materials analysis.
