This course aims to develop your knowledge and understanding of the underlying theories and their practical application in fire investigation.
You will also experience extensive practical experience of the major techniques, methodologies and approaches used in fire investigation.
In addition you will develop your skills in critical thinking using a range of academic paradigms by undertaking an extensive research project in the field of fire investigation.
The delivery of the course would involve a partnership between The West Midlands Fire Service, one of the leading centres of fire investigation in the UK and the University.
Both partners have an established track record in delivering training and education with a vocational aspect in this area.
The Fire Investigation facility situated at the Oldbury Fire Investigation centre will allow the student a unique hands-on practical experience that is not offered by any other MSc course in the Midlands region.
Opportunities for experienced fire investigators and forensic scene investigators to fast-track to the MSc will be part of this proposal.
