Bachelor of Forensic Science

Industry Overview Forensic science is a rapidly expanding field that involves applying science to the administration of law. DNA methods have revolutionised the area of forensic biology over the last twenty years and have resulted in a large increase in the number of jobs for DNA forensic scientists. Additionally, the heightened awareness of terrorism has led to a new area of forensic activity, namely microbial forensics. Further to that, the unfortunate increase in the incidence of mass disasters has led to the need for more robust and rapid DNA methods for identification of victims. Rapid advances and growth in the field of forensic genetics has also created a demand for individuals with expertise and training in the areas of forensic DNA testing, statistical evaluation of DNA results and legal testimony on testing procedures, results and interpretations. Bondís Forensic programs seek to provide graduates with the necessary specialised science along with a thorough appreciation of the methods and standards used in forensic laboratories and the legal framework within which this work must be done.
