Course summary

This master’s degree equips you with a deep understanding of the concepts, theories, methods and principles central to criminology and criminal psychology.

By studying Criminology and Criminal Psychology, you'll learn about the changing nature of psychology, law and criminology, and how to apply your knowledge in the forensic and legal arenas. The course will develop your ability to relate theory to practice with its broad coverage of criminological, forensic and psychological approaches to crime. Specific modules include criminal investigative psychology, crime theory, social forensic psychology, and crime, terrorism and the state.

The MSc in Criminology and Criminal Psychology will open a diverse range of career paths. Once you graduate, you will be well-placed for employment in public, private, and/or criminal justice work, or criminal, legal, and forensic psychological work.

You'll be able to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller group sessions. Contact hours are likely to fall between 9am and 9pm but this depends on your elective courses and tutorials.
