Forensic anthropology is the analysis of human remains for medical and legal purposes. This includes establishing identity, investigating suspicious deaths, and identifying victims of mass disasters. All these are critical to the successful outcome of legal investigations.
- 1st in the UK for Forensic Science (Complete University Guide, 2023).
- We were the first UK university to use Thiel embalming in our teaching.
- You’ll learn full body dissection on our Thiel embalmed cadavers. These cadavers maintain the fascial layers between structures. They are flexible and keep their lifelike colour and consistency.
- This benefits your learning in becoming a forensic practitioner. The identification of the deceased relies on not only hard tissue like the skeleton but also soft tissue information.
During your first two years, you’ll study modules within the School of Life Sciences. This gives you a solid understanding of physiology, biochemistry, and related biomedical sciences.
As the degree progresses, you’ll develop a sound knowledge of the human body from the early stages of development to the adult form. You’ll focus on skeletal anatomy. You will begin to learn how the analysis of the skeleton fits within a medicolegal investigation.
