Course summary

Why do people offend? Can we predict the victim? One of the most fascinating applications of psychology is in examining and tackling criminal behaviour. Our BPS-accredited course brings to life this relatively new and exciting field of psychology, exploring the criminal mind, practical forensics and legal areas such as police investigation and jury behaviour.The degree focuses on the techniques and issues at the forefront of practice in criminal, investigative and forensic psychology as well as key areas of the law such as police investigation, false confessions, expert witnesses and jury behaviour. You will study the foundations of psychology and how it applies to criminal behaviour before exploring different psychological approaches; the role of an individual’s culture and society; and practical forensic psychology.The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and completing it confers eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC), provided you meet the minimum standard of a second-class honours degree. To become a fully-fledged chartered forensic psychologist, you will have to continue your studies at postgraduate level and undertake supervised practice.**Professional Practice Year**This course has the option to be taken over four years which includes a year placement in industry.
