About this course

The Master Programme in Forensic Science in Uppsala provides you with a knowledge and understanding of how to apply biological and chemical analyses in crime scene investigations. The programme introduces you to generally used methods and technologies for broad knowledge and skills. Several of the laboratory components in the courses are connected with issues of criminalistics and based on novel research. The methods are generally used in many other areas apart from forensic science. The Master Programme in Forensic Science is thus a broad education with close ties to research.
