Course Information

The Master of Forensic Anthropology coursework enables you to undertake advanced studies in forensic anthropology, while developing an in-depth knowledge of the human skeleton. You'll gain a practical understanding of the scientist’s role within the Australian legal system, and have the opportunity to explore various anthropological techniques using traditional and digital modalities. There is considerable diversity of research related to forensic anthropology, ranging from morphometrics through to computer-graphic facial reconstruction, and interdisciplinary research is encouraged. You are provided with a grounding in ethics and research methods in Forensic Science, relevant theory and method applicable to forensic anthropology and the related disciplines of odontology and archaeology, as well as the analytical and practical skills needed to provide expert testimony in court. After successful completion of six coursework units you'll be able to specialise in a particular area of interest, gaining practical experience in an independent scientific study through the completion of a databased project of direct relevance to forensic anthropology.
