Introduction

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 program in Forensics, Criminology, and Law (FCL) can help you get there.

You will dive into the world of forensic psychology, accounting, and medicine, and will continuously analyze 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 perpetrators convicted. You will also learn to identify the limits of how forensic techniques and insights can be applied.

Thanks to the program'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.

Why this program?

Forensic research is becoming increasingly important in criminal investigations and the collection of evidence. Lawyers, public prosecutors, and judges experience that in their everyday work. The master’s program in Forensics, Criminology, and Law gives you insights into the different disciplines involved in the field of forensic research. You will also take a look at the part the criminal justice system plays within society. You'll take a number of compulsory courses, and you can choose from a wide range of elective courses and internship opportunities.
