Flinders University, Adelaide, (Australia)

Graduate Diploma in Forensic DNA:

This forensic DNA degree focuses on methods of molecular biology, in particular as applied to the use of DNA technology in forensic science, the theoretical basis of those methods, and their limitations and applications to specific problems in forensic science.

Students gain an understanding of the basic scientific concepts relevant to DNA technology. They also receive basic training in a range of field, laboratory and computational methods, as well as learning communication skills and problem-based and critical thinking skills.

Graduates will acquire the skills to perform laboratory procedures in forensic DNA techniques and maintain records to the exacting standards required for court-admissible evidence. They will also understand the theoretical basis of DNA technology to enable them to keep abreast of new techniques as they become part of DNA forensic practice. When cross-examined in court these graduates will also have the clear confidence in their techniques and record keeping to defend the veracity of their work.

    MassBay Community College, MA (USA)

    Associate Degree Program in Forensic DNA Science :

    The associate degree program in Forensic DNA Science is the first and only undergraduate degree program in this field in the world. The training of the program is unique for several reasons. First, students are trained by their participation in actual criminal and anthropological cases involving DNA evidence collection and analysis. Second, forensic training is entirely hands-on and confers on students extensive skills in DNA analysis. Third, students learn to perform mitochondrial DNA analysis, a high-demand forensic methodology used to determine the identity of unidentified human remains. Further, students intern with the world’s most renowned forensic institutions, including the FBI, Armed Forces DNA Identification Labs, and Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

    Upon completion, the Associate in Science Degree in Biotechnology with a concentration in Forensic DNA Science is awarded.
