About the Programme

The term forensic comes from the Latin term forensis that means of or before the forum”. The history of the term originates from Roman times in the late nineteenth century.

B.Sc. in Forensic Sciences is a 3- year programme in which you’ll study forensic chemistry, biology, imaging and photography, the essentials of forensic investigations, and professional and quantitative scientific skills. 

Then you’ll take modules on bodies, tissues and fluids, materials ID, drugs of abuse, analytical forensic chemistry, forensic IT and issues in criminal justice.

The third year will cover forensic case studies and the presentation of evidence, then fire, arson and explosions, authenticity and fraud, DNA profiling, forensic chemical pathology, and project and professional skills.

Why B.Sc. Forensic Science?

Crime scenario is rapidly changing at global level. OSGU is committed to create a world class curriculum in Forensic Science to educate the different class of people of society to counter this global techno-crimes scenario.
