Course description

Forensic Science

Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of forensics. Learn the intriguing details of how forensic science is used to solve crimes and bring criminals to justice.

Are you curious about Forensic Science and how it is used to solve crimes?

Many crimes are solved by a "smoking gun" such as an eyewitness or being caught in the act. Other crimes are more complex to solve and require forensic evidence to identify and prove the perpetrator's guilt.

Forensic Science has become the modern "smoking gun" to help solve many of these cases. Perhaps you've been watching too many CSI shows on TV and you've been wondering if all their techniques are real? Maybe you are interested to know how basic principles of science can be used in crime investigation, are considering a career as a forensic scientist, or need to know more to advance your current field, such as criminology, forensic psychology, criminal law, or crime-writing?

If your answer "yes" to any of these questions, our online Forensic Science course is uniquely designed for individuals like you, who:

  • Have an interest in science
  • Have a passion for solving crimes and justice
  • Enjoy obtaining new knowledge
  • Want a better understanding of criminal investigations and court cases
  • Are considering a new career or want to enhance your current career
  • Would like to have an impressive addition to your resume
