The programme aims to: Enable students to create an imaginative piece of writing which makes use of forensic cultures, histories, investigation and evidence. Provide students with good knowledge and understanding of the application of forensic methodologies. Advance students' understanding of the history of forensic investigation. Develop and support the students' planning and execution of a work of fiction or creative non-fiction. Cultivate the students' ability to think of their own creative work critically, being able to situate it within larger frameworks of theoretical and critical debates in literary studies.
