Content

Forensic artists aid in the identification or location of victims of crime, missing persons, or human remains. They help with the identification, apprehension, or conviction of criminals.

The course starts by giving you a strong foundation in anatomy, observational drawing, and anatomical illustration skills, before moving on to more specialised modules in the second semester.

The course was established in 2007 by the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID) and Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD). You will be taught by specialists from scientific backgrounds and experienced forensic art supervisors.

Entry Requirements

First or upper second class honours degree in art/design or related medical/anatomical science.

You should submit between 10-15 images including a number of examples from direct observation, such as life drawing or portrait sculpture. You will be invited to upload your portfolio after we receive your application.

Relevant professional experience will be taken into account if you have no graduate qualifications.
