SCIENCE
Asked by Millie

What qualifications do I need to be a forensic scientist?

To work as a forensic scientist you'll usually need either a degree in a scientific subject, such as biological sciences or chemistry, or a degree in forensic science. Degree subjects such as statistics and geology can be useful for entry into specialist areas of forensic science. While there's been an increase in the number of forensic science undergraduate degree courses, they don't all provide the skills and knowledge required to work as a forensic scientist, so check details of accredited courses with The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (CSFS). Competition for jobs is intense, so you may want to take an MSc or PhD in forensic science. A Masters in a forensic specialty such as archaeology or anthropology can also be useful.
