    Recently I've considered becoming a forensics analyst, and I was wondering if I would be able yo take me preferred course (genetics) or if I would be better off studying biology as a whole at undergraduate level in order to get into this career. Any help appreciated

    Hello

    I'm a second year Biology student and I'm thinking of going into Forensics as well. I've had a look around at jobs and most of the time they only ask for a degree in Biochemistry related subject (including Genetics and Biology). I think they just want you used to how to analyse a situation and some of the techniques and basic lab practice. Obviously I haven't been to any interviews year so I can't say if they tend to prefer one degree over the other!

    I would take the one you're more interested in because you'll have a better chance at getting a good grade. However, forensics is incredibly hard to get into so make sure there's another job you'd be interested in with the degree as well.

    Best of luck!
