Course summary

Overview

Develop core psychological knowledge and skills in forensic and investigative research and psychological enquiry, and develop your awareness of ‘best practice’ approaches in accordance with professional practice frameworks.

We adopt an applied approach to teaching and learning with an emphasis on evidence-based practice and a focus on the scientist-practitioner model. The course aims to develop the practical and academic skills you will need to become a confident, professional and reflective practitioner including, critical evaluation, communication (written, oral and non-verbal), reflection and the ability to synthesise knowledge.

Our strong external links with forensic and investigative psychologists, practitioners and researchers in the field will enhance your learning experience.

Forensic and Investigative Psychology is a discipline that involves the application of scientific theory and principles to help in the understanding, investigation, assessment and treatment of offenders and criminality, and legal responses to criminality.

Your future career

Upon completion of this programme, students may explore opportunities to work within forensic environments, seek employment with forensic mental health services (e.g. NHS, private sector), pursue employment as a probation officer, prison officer, assistant psychologist or police officer roles or further education (e.g. PhD, Doctorate clinical and Forensic Psychology).
