Course summary

Psychology is the science of human behaviour and mind. It is concerned with individual psychological processes and the social context of how we think and interact with the world around us. Forensic Psychology applies these processes and knowledge to legal domains, helping shape how the police, courts, prisons and probation services understand and react to victims, witnesses and offenders.Our course is the first step to training as a Forensic Psychologist. Forensic psychologists assess and treat offenders, work with victims and witnesses to crime, and give evidence in court. They might carry out risk assessments on offenders with mental health issues, work with children with anti-social behaviour or create treatment plans to help rehabilitate offenders.Through studying with us, you’ll develop a thorough understanding of psychology, studying core British Psychological Society (BPS) content, such as Freud’s personality theory, Piaget’s theory of cognitive development, the social factors that affect our behaviour, and what makes us individuals. As well as developing a thorough understanding of key psychological research, theory and principles, you’ll also explore a wide range of topics focusing on psychology in legal contexts, including offender behaviour, eyewitness testimony, jury decision-making, police investigations, and the assessment and treatment of offenders.Work-based learning really helps you to see how psychology applies to everyday life, and gives you valuable experience of working in professional settings.Our degree courses are accredited by the British Psychological Society, which has also ranked the Department of Psychology at Manchester Met as outstanding.**Features and benefits**- **Accredited course** - Our course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).- ** Outstanding facilities-** You’ll have access to our specialist facilities for psychology demonstration and practice, which includes an fNIRS imaging research device, 12 experimental testing laboratories and six psychology laboratories.- ** Teaching expertise-** Our teaching staff includes practicing researchers, counsellors, and forensic and community psychologists.- ** Study abroad-** You’ll have the option to choose our Study Abroad route.
