About Forensic & Archaeological...
Masters degrees in Forensic & Archaeological Sciences study the principles behind the investigation and recovery of material human evidence. They provide expertise required by a range of practical fields, including historical archaeology and modern policing.
Subjects within this discipline draw on a similar toolkit, but can have very different applications.
A Masters in Archaeological Science will tend to focus on the methods used to analyse and preserve materials of historical and cultural interest. A Masters in Forensic Science will use scientific techniques to recover evidence from more recent crime scenes. Areas of overlap include forensic archaeology, which uses archaeological techniques to analyse older criminal evidence.
Qualifications in this discipline have a range of obvious professional applications in practical fields and in theoretical research.
A Masters in Archaeological Science can lead to an exciting career investigating physical sites and supporting excavations. Alternatively, you may be based within a laboratory or museum (or a laboratory within a museum!) analysing collections to gain new insight into important artefacts.
A Masters in Forensic Science will prepare you for work law enforcement and criminal justice systems. You may work directly in support of a police force, assisting with the investigation of crime scenes. Or you may help develop new techniques and technologies to assist with solving or preventing future crimes.
