Forensic criminology involves the application of criminological knowledge to investigative and forensic issues. It is a science in that it uses the scientific method as well as logic, reasoning and critical thinking to address a variety of applied issues. Forensic Criminology introduces students to this applied field of criminology by introducing the concepts and principles involved. To meet this end, students will be exposed to the wide variety of professionals they may encounter in professional practice, many of whom could be considered forensic practitioners in their own right. This includes police and private investigators, forensic scientists, and lawyers and other legal counsel. Students will also learn about the nature and scope of forensic criminology matters including ethics and report writing.
