The Master of Forensic Behavioural Science comprises coursework and research training that will enable graduates to work effectively in the widest range of forensic environments and with the widest range of forensic populations and to deal with complex and challenging issues in an autonomous manner. Professionals who work in forensic mental health/behavioural science contexts, or with forensic populations (such as offenders) require specialised skills.
In addition to acquiring in-depth knowledge and skills in various aspects of forensic behavioural science, the Master of Forensic Behavioural Science will allow students to undertake two or five research-related units depending on their preferred future career aspirations.
This course is offered through the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science at Swinburne, in collaboration with the Victorian Institute of Forensic Mental Health (Forensicare).
Note: This course is available to local students and off-shore international students who are studying in a country other than Australia; this course is not available to on-shore international students on a student visa.
