MSc DNA Profiling is designed for both graduate students and forensic practitioners. It will develop your theoretical knowledge and practical application of the key aspects of forensic DNA profiling. The course will be taught as a combination of lectures, practicals and self-directed study.
On this course you will study the fundamentals of molecular genetics and population biology that underpin the discipline of DNA profiling. The interpretation of DNA evidence will be examined in detail. This will involve the analysis of complex DNA profiles (degraded and mixed) and the statistical analysis that is central to the interpretation of DNA profiles and presentation of evidence.
In addition to six taught modules you will undertake a three module research project which will develop research skills.
Specific entry requirements for this course are a 2.2 degree in a related field or equivalent professional experience in the discipline.
