Want to study both Psychology and Criminology at University? Our BSc (Hons) Psychology with Criminology degree combines both subjects. This is a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited Psychology course with Criminology as a minor subject. Every semester you will study 2 Psychology and 1 Criminology module. You will also have the opportunity take a year-long professional placement. Our innovative Psychology with Criminology course will give you a deep understanding of how the core and specialised areas in Psychology and Criminology contribute to our understanding of contemporary issues. You will apply scientific reasoning and evaluate patterns of behaviour, gaining key transferable skills in communication, teamwork and problem-solving. Additionally, you will also learn how psychology can be applied to explain certain aspects of crime and criminal behaviour. This versatile course provides the opportunity for you to embark on a Psychology career or bring those skills to the domain of Criminology. Professional Placement Year This course offers an optional professional placement year. This allows you to spend a whole year with an employer, following successful completion of your second year, and is a great way to find out more about your chosen career. Some students even return to the same employers after completing their studies. If you choose to pursue a placement year, you will need to find a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. You will be able to draw on the University’s extensive network of local, regional, and national employers, and the support of our Careers teams. If you are able to secure a placement, you can request to be transferred to the placement version of the course. Please note that fees are payable during your placement year, equivalent to 20% of the total full-time course fee for that year.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
