Course summary

Course Overview

This three-year course combines both Psychology and Criminology, giving you the chance to become an expert in both areas. You’ll look at psychology as its own discrete discipline and then delve into the implications for the criminal mind set.

Unlock the secrets behind the criminal mind

Criminology sheds light on the contexts in which crime and social life are discussed. Having criminology as a secondary discipline brings a sociological perspective on crime to core areas of psychology, which can be applied to understanding criminal behaviour.

The course will give you insights into social diversity and inequality. You’ll understand their implications for crime and the criminal justice system. You’ll also learn about the ethical issues related to working with vulnerable people in the criminal justice system or researching issues related to crime and victimisation. This course is also available part-time.

Be a part of the British Psychological Society

This course has been accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), a qualification recognised by major employers throughout the country. All our compulsory modules take you through the core BPS requirements. Once you graduate, with a 2.2 or above, you’ll be eligible for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). From there, you’ll be able to take the next steps towards being a Chartered Psychologist.

Employability

What are my career prospects
