Course summary

Psychology:

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and its functions. This exciting degree will help you learn more about yourself and others and give you a deep insight into how the human mind works and affects behaviour to propel you in your future career or further study after you graduate.

On this BSc, you’ll develop an excellent understanding of the core areas of this inspiring field, including biological, social and developmental psychology. You’ll explore how psychology can have a positive impact on people's lives, and learn about the latest developments, in subjects as diverse as neuropsychology and criminal psychology.

Career options

You could pursue specialist work in forensic, educational or clinical psychology, or use the sought-after transferable skills our psychology degree provides to work in the commercial, charitable or entrepreneurial sectors. Psychology graduates can go onto careers in Human Resources, recruitment, media and marketing, user experience design, law enforcement, research, Public Relations, project management and business analysis.

Criminology:

Criminology draws from a range of other disciplines including sociology, psychology and law. On this exciting degree, you will study contemporary problems relating to crime prevention, criminalisation and social control.

Criminologists study crime, the criminal justice system and society’s response to the impact of criminal behaviour. You will develop a critical understanding of how the criminal justice system operates, and the relationship between punishments and crime prevention. Criminologists also analyse challenging problems relating to harmful behaviours in society and assess a range of solutions.

Career options

Studying criminology opens the door to working in many different areas that shape society. You could secure work in the prison and probation services, the police, Home Office, Ministry of Justice or the wider criminal justice system. You will also be equipped to pursue a career in the legal profession.
