Course summary

The Forensic Psychology degree covers criminality, crime investigation, and the roles of psychology and forensic science in the criminal justice system, alongside a wide spectrum of psychology. If you’re interested in criminal attitudes and want to investigate how psychology can help us to understand criminal behaviour, this course provides an excellent basis for a career in psychology and criminology related areas. Taught from our multi-million-pound Science Centre, our facilities include an observation room, psychology labs, cutting-edge equipment and a crime scene house. You’ll complete group and individual projects, develop your presentation skills and, in specific modules, use techniques such as fingerprint and drug analysis, eye-tracking and galvanic skin response. The BSc (Hons) Forensic Psychology programme is accredited with the British Psychological Society (BPS) meaning that successful completion of this programme (with a minimum of a 2:2 degree) will enable you to claim Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) after graduation, which is the first stage towards becoming a professional psychologist. Our Forensic Psychology degree will help you to delve further into the inner workings of the mind, to broaden your understanding of the human psyche and to question why people behave the way they do. You will explore the underlying thoughts, feelings and motivations behind criminal minds across a broad range of topic areas. You will also cover the fundamental principles of psychology which will allow you to analyse the relationships between psychological and social factors which can contribute to deviant and antisocial behaviour. Many of our lecturers are active in research or have experience working within the legal system and will lead you through your lectures, seminars, practical sessions and laboratory practicals. All are experts within their fields and will offer support and guidance throughout your entire time studying with us. You will be provided with opportunities to prepare you for employment. Graduates from our Forensic Psychology degree have pursued careers with the police, the National Probation Service, the prison service and the Home Office. After completing British Psychological Society accredited postgraduate study, some have become professional chartered psychologists whilst others have sought careers in social, welfare and health management.
