Course summary

Please note this course replaces BSc (Hons) Psychology and Criminology.Is there such a thing as a criminal mind? What is the relationship between criminology and psychology? Explore both subjects in parallel on our fascinating, Cambridge-based course and learn from practising forensic and clinical psychologists. You’ll attend the Old Bailey in London, sit in on live trials at Crown Court and visit Auschwitz in Krakow. Our strong industry links and your dual Honours degree will open up career opportunities in psychology, criminology, and the police, prison and probation services.Explore the realms of psychology and criminology on our fascinating degree course. We start by looking at the main principles of psychology and criminology. Following that, you can choose from a huge range of optional modules, giving you the freedom to explore your own interests in more depth.You’ll learn about criminal profiling and how it offers insights into youth offending, gendered violence, genocide, rape, abuse and other types of crime. You’ll look at media representations of crime, and the promotion of fear. You’ll also focus in detail on social and development psychology, which allows you to understand how we develop and how others impact on our thoughts, emotions and behaviours.Our specialist laboratories give you the chance to gain extra insight, as well as practical skills. Measure electrical currents in the brain by using electrodes on the scalp in the EEG (electroencephalography) lab; and analyse hair and saliva samples and use them to investigate the relationship between psychological and physical health in the psychoneuroimmunology lab.As part of this course you will have the opportunity to engage in field trips, such as visits to the Old Bailey in London and Auschwitz, Krakow. You will also understand the dynamics of the court room and sit in on live trials at the local Crown Court. In your final year you have the option to select Forensic Psychology, a module that allows you to learn about theories of offending and offender rehabilitation first hand from Forensic Psychologists-in-training drawing in the prison service. You can also decide whether to conduct your final year project in Criminology or Psychology.Our staff are active researchers and you’ll be in regular contact with them via taught and extra-curricular activities.
