The Master of Forensic Science (Extension) prepares students for professional and specialist work in the discipline of forensic science and is designed for professional scientists wishing to update and broaden their scientific and professional skillset with managerial/business acumen or research experience.
This course is designed to expand students' knowledge and practice of forensic science alongside developing science management and leadership skills. The course contains compulsory core and elective practice-focused forensic science subjects across a range of disciplines from the crime scene to the laboratory. Professional subjects covering a range of skills crucial to all professional scientists – such as project and laboratory management, advanced scientific communication, ethics, innovation and science business models – complete the course. The final session of electives allows students to complement their existing skillset using tailored subjects from related disciplines across health, engineering and business, or to study a current problem in their discipline area by undertaking a research internship (subject to approval by the faculty).
For students with suitable achievement levels, an opportunity to undertake a more substantial research project is available by transferring into the Master of Philosophy in Forensic Science (C04393). For those considering a research degree, the Master of Philosophy provides a pathway to a PhD.
