Course summary

**Course Overview**- Take an advanced route through Forensic Sciences, enhancing your degree studies by exploring masters-level analytical techniques and understanding.- This is a four-year integrated masters course, which means you’ll study the same specialist modules you’ll find on our forensic science programme, before moving on to cover advanced modules in chemical analysis. So, in the first years, you’ll cover several key areas of forensics – investigation, biology, anthropology and chemistry – before focusing on the application of spectroscopic techniques for the analysis of trace evidence, and finally carry out a novel research project in an area of your choice.- Throughout the programme, you’ll have the chance to learn from experienced senior forensic scientists and CSIs, as well as academics who are leaders in their field. You’ll develop professional-standard techniques by getting hands-on with cutting-edge instrumentation, such as electron microscopes, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance machines, Raman and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass-Spectrometers.- Thanks to our role within the Lancashire Forensic Science Academy, you may also have the opportunity for CSI workplace experiences, placements in scientific support and live research projects that will have a real-world impact. As such, by the time you leave us, you should have the advanced understanding, specialist analytical tools and practical skills that will offer a significant advantage when it comes to getting a job in this highly competitive field.**Why study with us**- Our Forensic Science teaching is ranked 1st in the North West and in the UK’s top 10 (Complete University Guide 2020).- Our research-active staff have strong links with constabularies, criminal investigation agencies and hospital laboratories, further enhanced by our pioneering Lancashire Forensic Science Academy.- Master of Science in Forensic Science and Chemical Analysis is ranked 1st in the North West with 88% of students in graduate-level work or further study after graduating (Guardian University Guide 2021)
