The Master of Science in Forensic Science, subject area Identification, offers in-depth training, both theoretical and practical, in the identification of people or objects.
Transdisciplinary teaching covers the main areas of identification: fingerprinting, DNA analysis, biometrics, detection of traces, firearms and hand-writing/signatures, and lays particular emphasis on statistical methods of interpretation.
The Master of Science in Forensic Science, subject area Identification, is designed to lay the foundations of legal expertise in the field of identification. Practical teaching is therefore strongly oriented towards the resolution of fictitious cases and case analyses. Students are encouraged to consider problems relating to research, detection and identification in investigative and evaluative mode and to conduct their research in the manner of an expert’s report intended for the criminal courts.
