Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home.This programme offers an opportunity to explore and explain some of society’s most fascinating questions. Studying this popular combination allows you to study the human mind and behaviour, gain an understanding of crime, criminals, and how society defines and responds to them. You will graduate with a Psychology degree accredited by the British Psychological Society, plus in-depth knowledge of Criminology. This combination is ideal for students wishing to study the relationship between human behaviour and the social context and structures in which crime, harm and victimisation occur. Criminology is broadly concerned with how crime and deviance are understood, the efforts made to control crime, and the consequences of crime for offenders, victims and society. Psychology is a large and varied discipline dealing with the systematic investigation of mind and behaviour. You will learn about the social, legal and historical construction of crime and ‘deviance’ alongside psychological aspects of behaviour concerning individual differences, social, developmental, cognitive and biological perspectives.Our programme makes for well-rounded, highly skilled and marketable graduates with substantive knowledge across two disciplines of particular contemporary significance. Many students find their degree useful for careers in probation, community work, victim support, drug and addiction centres and other occupations across the public and private sectors. Many also go on to further study.We also build opportunities for developing employability skills into all our modules, for example by encouraging the use and analysis of primary data, and the presentation of material to a range of different audiences. You will also get opportunities to hear from practitioners and researchers active in the field.
