Are you interested in why people violate social norms and engage in deviant behaviour? This full-time three year programme provides a unique opportunity to develop an understanding of criminological and forensic psychology, mental health, human rights and diversity, legal frameworks and crime. The programme is designed to develop understanding of biological, cognitive, developmental, individual difference and social psychological principles, theories and empirical findings that underlie everyday experience. You will then develop your knowledge of a wide range of criminal, delinquent and deviant behaviour through an in-depth understanding of criminology and forensic psychology, culminating in the opportunity to conduct an independent dissertation project in an area of your choice. Course content The BSc (Hons) Criminology and Forensic Psychology programme has been designed to meet the accreditation criteria of the British Psychological Society (BPS). You will be eligible for a Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the BPS. The programme explores knowledge in both criminological and forensic psychology as well as everyday functions. Through lectures, workshops and small group seminars, the programme is designed to encourage critical thinking by evaluating perspectives on psychology and crime. Practical experiments are used as a foundation for understanding and explanation. You will learn to link the development of research and analytic skills to explanations relevant to everyday experiences, as well as those in the forensic context. Laboratory experience and skills development is embedded within this process, as is practical experience of research participation, linking the development of research and analytic skills to explaining behaviours relevant to everyday functioning and experiences. The dissertation allows a range of intellectual and practical skills to be assessed, and for students to choose an area of interest or relevance for to future employment. Areas that we explore at BSc include level include:

  • Criminological Psychology
  • Sexual Offending
  • Young People and Crime
  • Legal Frameworks
