Study a forensic science degree in Ireland

Forensic Science is the study of gathering evidence from past events. The most publicised part of the subject is crime scene investigation. However, forensics covers a wide range of subjects, including anthropology, computer science, and anatomy. It gained popularity for academic and professional use during the 1970s and remains a key part of today's justice system.

Forensic scientists develop observation skills and analytical thinking and can work independently or in groups. Although Forensic Science is available as an undergraduate degree at many Irish universities, it is more common as a postgraduate course, generally taken after a degree in chemistry or biology.
