Course summary

**Why Forensic Psychology?**Our Forensic Psychology degree will prepare you for a rewarding career, whether you’re looking to progress to further study and become a forensic psychologist, or are interested in a range of roles in the criminal justice system, security services, victim support or youth work. You’ll examine different types of offenders and offences ranging from anti-social behaviour, to sexual violence and terrorism, as well as the impact on victims and the help they may need to give witness evidence.Forensic content will be integral to your studies rather than just an ‘added extra’, while our course is also designed to ensure you complete the core curriculum requirements set by the British Psychological Society (BPS). You’ll cover essential topics including risks and protective factors in psychological development, intelligence and investigations, and understanding the criminal mind. You can also tailor your degree to match your own interests and career ambitions, learning about specialist subject areas such as addictive behaviours, serious crime analysis and behavioural investigative advice, responding to sexual violence, and crime scene forensics.Drawing on the expert knowledge of our lecturers, you’ll build hands-on experience throughout your time with us. From collecting, analysing and presenting evidence in exercises that model the journey from crime scene to court, to evaluating case studies and preparing research reports, you’ll learn how forensic psychologists apply psychological knowledge to real-world situations.**Why University of Gloucestershire?**We’ve been using our expertise to support and inspire students since 1847.
