About the Course
The Bachelor's of Science: Forensic Sciences course is a three-year undergraduate program for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in Forensic Science. The course mainly trains students to understand and analyze a criminal activity and/or a crime scene. Forensic Science is mostly a crime-scene based science, but graduates of forensic science are also consulted in civil cases such as proving the validity of a signature on a will or an important document. Professionals in forensic sciences are also consulted for any issue where the people involved could be cutting corners or performing illegal activities.
Forensic Science is broadly classified into three groups: Medical Science, Laboratory Science and Field Science.
- Medical Data Science includes forensic pathology, psychiatry, psychology, forensic medicine and ontology.
- Laboratory Sciences includes chemistry, biology, toxicology, ballistics, fingerprints, suspected documents, and marks & impressions.
- Field Sciences include crime scenes investigation which incorporates areas such as fire and explosion scenes and secret drug laboratories.
