Make sure you check on the university, college or conservatoire website for any updates about course changes as a result of COVID-19.

Course summary

This degree combines the study of Criminology and Psychology in a single programme, enabling you to explore multiple contrasting and complementary perspectives to a variety of aspects of the two subjects, fostering the capacity for critical evaluation of both disciplines. You will develop the criminological skills to research, analyse and critique the complexities of behaviour categorised as criminal, as well as gain a detailed understanding of the workings of the criminal justice system. The degree will also enable you to develop your skills, knowledge and understanding of some of the major issues and perspectives within psychology. An optional dissertation will provide you with the opportunity to combine specific aspects of your interests across both fields of study via an independent research project, conducted with the support of your tutors. Please note, this degree does not confer eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS), the first step towards becoming a chartered psychologist. If you wish to study a slightly higher number of Psychology modules than Criminology modules and gain this accreditation, you should consider our BSc (Hons) Psychology and Criminology degree.
