Course Information

Why study Psychology with Criminology

  • Perhaps you’re looking to go into a career in forensic psychology in the criminal justice system, or you’re just fascinated by psychology and crime. This course aims to give you a thorough grounding in both general psychology, and criminal psychology which could be applied to a wide range of situations and careers once you graduate.
  • On the course you’ll have the opportunity to explore some specialist areas like biopsychology, developmental psychology, personality and individual differences, and forensic psychology. We’ll help you gain an invaluable insight into what makes people behave the way they do, and why they choose to take part in criminal activity.
  • Psychology is the science of mind and behaviour. We’ll give you the opportunity to explore how psychological theory relates to the actions people take in life. You'll look at criminal behaviour, and weigh up the different theories about the causes of crime. From parenting to society, peer pressure and genetics, you’ll investigate the potential triggers and assess their importance. The aim is to give you some crucial insights into how psychology is used within the criminal justice system.

How will you learn

  • Taking a hands-on approach you'll be encouraged to think and apply your knowledge, looking at how theories actually apply in the real world.
  • Our facilities are designed to give you as much practical experience as possible. Our counselling labs are fitted with cameras and microphones, so you’ll be able to practise your skills by acting out scenarios, followed by detailed feedback on how you’re doing.
  • This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), so you’ll be able to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership if you graduate with a Lower Second Class Honours or higher.
