No Experience Necessary
Question by The Residing President: Is Physics a necessity to pursue a career in Forensics or as a Criminalist?
I am currently doing Year 10 and am focusing on becoming a language expert, journalist or a Criminalist. I intend to widen my options though and might also consider Forensics or Criminalist. As I do not take a liking towards Physics, is it possible for me to drop the subject and still pursue this option?
And I meant Criminalist as a third option.

Forensics is a _massively_ wide area. It would depend on what sort of forensics you were interested in.
There are certainly forensics jobs which require physics – I nearly applied for one of them, and I have a physics degree. There are others which are strongly chemistry-based, or biology-based. And then you have things like forensic psychology.
