Forensic Science or Forensic Anthropology

    • Thread Starter

    I want to study at LJMU in 2017. I'm torn between studying forensic science or forensic anthropology. I've just been to the open day as i thought it would help me make my decision. But i just felt more confused. Anyone else torn between two subjects?

    Why are you confused? Maybe go where there are more options to mix and match modules? Also if you're unsure, the forensic science course is probably broader. You can always specialise later.

    Go for Forensic science if you're more interested in the chemistry side (which I am) whereas anthropology is more based on the biology and focuses on anatomy. My local university's FA course is heavily based on bone structure and identification from remains.
