Understand how psychology can be applied to explain aspects of crime and criminal behaviour. This course will provide you with the opportunity to explore criminological issues alongside a psychological focus, and it will offer new ways of thinking about society while honing your understanding of people. You will engage with assumptions about the place of crime in society and our responses to it, and through social research you will gain an understanding of the causes and effects of crime and deviant behaviour. By using a range of psychological approaches to study human behaviour and thought, you will understand why people respond the way they do to crime.
