Course summary

The exciting and versatile Psychology and Criminology degree will broaden your knowledge of the key psychological approaches, towards understanding and explaining criminal behaviour and the justice system. You'll learn about the social context of crime, criminal behaviour and the criminal justice system from sociological, legal and psychological perspectives. And you'll learn how this relates to victimology, punitive justice, treatment and rehabilitation. Our emphasis on key learning practices will ensure that you are well prepared for careers in Criminology and/or Psychology  or for postgraduate study. The course is delivered by specialist staff teaching in our multi-million-pound purpose-built Science Centre, equipped with industry standard facilities. The BSc (Hons) 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. Through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and practical laboratory work, you’ll be encouraged to develop your critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills. Assessment is varied and interesting and is aimed at developing you for prospective work and further study. In Year 3, you’ll have the opportunity to focus on a specific area of interest, where you can apply the skills that you’ve developed throughout the course and contribute to existing research in the field. Throughout your studies, your Psychology modules will pay great attention to unravelling the intricacies of the mind and will help you to explore why different people act the way they do, whilst your criminology modules will focus on the different relationships between crime victimisation and the justice system. You will be provided with opportunities to prepare you for employment. Graduates from our Psychology and Criminology degree embark on a wider range of careers. Many secure work within the Police, Prison and Parole Services. Some enter postgraduate study, whilst others work in caring and guidance professions, youth / community work, and teaching.
