Course summary

During this course you will have access to authoritative information about forensic science, the police and the law, and will also learn about forensic experts and the role they play in legal investigations. You will also learn the skills needed to create an imaginative piece of writing, which makes use of forensic cultures, histories, investigation and evidence.

Scotland is fast establishing itself as a major destination for crime writing, with authors, festivals and publishers all contributing to the 'Tartan Noir' phenomenon. During your time with us, you will be part of an inspiring, imaginative community, where forensic science and creativity successfully work together.
