Course in Scientific and Forensic Photography
Lausanne University (Project Leader)
Arc University of Applied Sciences St. Imier
The aim of the project is to develop a course in applied scientific and
forensic photography in which the forensic sciences are used as the primary
source of communication. Placing the forensic sciences at the heart of
the project means that a multi-disciplinary approach can be used to address
a vast number of photographic questions.
This outline is intended to provide an overview of the course's principal
characteristics covering the BSc and MSc levels. These levels represent
two development phases (3 and 4). The attached funding application only
covers the costs incurred for phase 3, but a further proposal for phase
4 may also be submitted. Phase 3 will lead to the development of an online
scientific and forensic photography course covering various modules that
focus on specific but complementary aspects.
Completion of all modules in this BSc-level course will be worth 15 ECTS
