In the Master Forensics, Criminology and Law, lecturers and researchers engaged in criminal law, criminology, economics, medicine and psychology work together, making optimal use of the forensics-related know-how and research available in their respective faculties. All staff members are engaged in highly qualified scientific research programmes and incorporate the findings of their research activities in the different courses. Due to the fact that a number of staff members also render services to the Maastricht Forensic Institute (tMFI), there is a direct link between the activities of tMFI and the courses in the Master in Forensics, Criminology and Law.
Students work in tutorial groups, collaboratively seeking practical solutions to open-ended, real-world problems. Instructors act as facilitators, giving help when and where it is needed. This allows you to build independence and develop research skills. Problem-Based Learning is well suited to the broad-based nature of the master’s programme. Problem-Based Learning requires you to be proactive in setting learning goals. In tutorial groups you will actively engage your peers over matters of forensics, criminology and law, helping you build the academic skills necessary for your career.
