Course summary

Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), this course helps to give you an understanding of the human mind and how it shapes and influences our behaviour. The programme explores human behaviour using sound scientific methodology – observation, measurement, and testing – to understand how and why people function in the way they do. Alongside studies in psychology, you will also explore the study of crime, how psychological theories can be applied to criminal behaviour, and social reactions to crime. Gaining a professionally accredited psychology degree by BPS is an essential first step to a career as a psychologist or to progress to postgraduate study. Our programme helps to equip you with transferable skills in critical thinking and communication, as well as more industry specific competencies such as scientific research methods, data analysis and data presentation skills. Our graduates have gone on to pursue careers where an understanding of societal issues is key – such as in criminal justice, education, social work, research, advertising, human resources and healthcare.On our programme you’ll study core areas of psychology including biological, cognitive, developmental and social psychology, and you’ll cover personality and intelligence, research methods, and historical perspectives. Through elective modules in the second and third years, you will have the opportunity to tailor your learning to align with your chosen area of specialism within psychology with criminology; be it counselling psychology, work psychology, cyberpsychology plus many more.Key features- Our course is accredited by the BPS, which ensures our teaching is continually relevant to the latest developments and challenges in the sector.- Benefit from dedicated computer laboratories with the latest analysis software, individual research cubicles, interview rooms, and an observation suite, all supported by our psychology technicians team.- The expertise of our staff spans across four main research clusters, which are Health Psychology, Cognition and Neuroscience, Psychology and Technology, and Self and Identity.- Graduates from this course can gain the skills to pursue careers across a variety of sectors, such as healthcare, research, social work, marketing, police services, teaching and human resources.- Enrich your studies with an international experience through our DMU Global programme.

Criminology students have also gained a more detailed understanding of state crime at the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland, explored sub-cultures in Chicago, and visited Bosnia and Herzegovina to explore the experiences of victims of the Bosnian genocide.- Tailor your learning with optional modules that enable you to pursue your individual passions or career aspirations.- You’ll be taught by a team of expert criminologists who are involved in teaching and research, and many have worked within criminal justice or allied fields and have strong links with the British Society of Criminology and the British Sociological Association which ensure teaching is current and relevant.- - **DMU’s careers and employability service, known as DMU Works, was awarded the Best University Careers/Employability Service at the National Undergraduate Employability (NUE) Awards in February 2021.
