Forensic Biology



The forensic biology major aims to provide you with the specific biological skills that are very important in the forensic science workplace. These biological-based skills complement the generic forensic science attributes developed in the core units of the course.   Study in this area may lead to a career based on entomology, human anatomy and DNA based forensic science.

Students must complete a major sequence in either Forensic Biology or Forensic Chemistry in addition to the core unit requirements.
