Course Summary

On our British Psychological Society-accredited Forensic Psychology degree, you’ll graduate with a broad understanding of the key topics related to working with offenders and victims of crime. You’ll have the opportunity to explore theories that explain offending behaviour, and apply this knowledge in interactive workshops run by professionals who actually work with offenders, including forensic psychologists and probation officers. Our Forensic Psychology team conduct world-class research and publish our findings internationally, whilst applying our work in real-life forensic settings; we then take a great deal of pleasure in teaching you the latest findings to advance your knowledge. You’ll be taught a variety of topics which are current, and relevant to the practice of forensic psychology. Examples include family violence, victimology, antisocial behaviour, criminal psychopathy, life in secure forensic settings, online sex exploitation, stalking, sex and violent offending.Some of our graduates pursue a career in psychology by undertaking postgraduate training to become professional psychologists, including our BPS-accredited master’s programmes. However, UCLan graduates are valued more broadly, and others utilise the skills that our degree encourages to take graduate-level positions in a range of organisations, including the Police, Prison Service, NHS, social and community services, health authorities and in the pharmaceutical industry, and in education and training. A large number of the graduates from this course go on to study the MSc Forensic Psychology course taking advantage of the range of scholarships and discounts available to our own students. Others have worked within the health services (for example, assistant psychologist, carer, support worker), within legal services (for example, HMPS, litigation clerk, law mentor) or used their psychology skills in other domains such as management, sales and account manager.
