The programme is designed for individuals who have an interest in developing their knowledge and critical understanding of crime, its causes and impact on the victims and wider society. You will be able to engage with and draw upon a range of intellectual and critical processes in decisions you make in everyday practice. Welcoming, friendly community of students and lecturers, including the Worcester Psychology Society, with guest speakers, group trips, social nights and a mentoring scheme. Personal and academic tutoring based as much on your career prospects as your studies. When you choose to combine Psychology with another subject in a Joint Honours degree you will not receive the BPS accreditation as this pathway does not provide full coverage of mandatory BPS curriculum content. However, there is flexibility to switch to Single Honours at the end of the first year if you wish to receive a BPS accredited Psychology degree.
Graduates will gain a wide range of skills and knowledge that will attract employment from a variety of agencies and organisations in the criminal justice sector, whether public, private or 3rd sector as well as health, business, counselling, forensics, education and sport. To help you prepare for your career, and maybe get a taste of different options, you’ll have plenty of work experience opportunities. We work closely with the university’s Careers and Employability team, arranging placements, both paid and voluntary, with many local and national organisations – including the NHS, Alive! Charity, the BPS, West Mercia Police Constabulary, Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, Worcestershire County Council and HMP Aylesbury. You can also take part in workshops devoted to CV writing, interview skills, recruitment and assessment techniques. And you’ll have the chance to talk to guest speakers, and visit potential employers – as well as getting help to apply for work and postgraduate study.
