Forensics, Criminology and Law

Do you aspire to build a career in law or as a forensic consultant in business or in government? And would you like to be better prepared for this, with additional knowledge about crime and how evidence is obtained?  If so, the master’s programme in Forensics, Criminology and Law can help you get there.

You will dive into the world of forensic psychology, accounting and medicine, and will continuously analyse these disciplines in relation to the law. You will develop an understanding of why forensics increasingly plays a decisive role in solving crimes and in getting the perpretrators convicted. You will also learn to identify the limits of how forensic techniques and insights can be applied.

Thanks to the programme's multidisciplinary approach to crime and criminal justice, in addition to the usual legal professions, you can also look for work in law enforcement agencies, psychiatric services or policy functions within the Ministry of Justice.
