Eager to learn about crime, criminal justice and the fundamental principles of psychology? Fascinated by the science of mind and behaviour? Our criminology and psychology degree combines both subjects in a lively and engaging fashion. Want to get a deeper understanding of the criminal justice system and how it works? Ready to untangle the complexities of criminal behaviour? By combining the study of criminology and psychology, you’ll explore contrasting and complementary perspectives of these two subjects. We’ve designed this course to allow you some freedom of choice when it comes to choosing your modules – so you’ll be able to explore topics that complement one another. For example, you might examine forensic psychology to understand what motivates people to carry out criminal behaviour in Psychology, alongside the relationships between crime and place in Criminology. In your final year, an optional dissertation will give you the chance to independently research your specific areas of interest across both fields of study, with the support and guidance of your tutors. Please note: This criminology and psychology degree doesn’t confer eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS), which is the first step towards becoming a chartered psychologist. If you want to gain this accreditation by studying a slightly higher number of psychology modules, take a look at our BSc (Hons) Psychology & Criminology degree.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
Assessment methods include essays, formal examinations, statistical exercises, group research projects, report writing, oral presentations, designing a research proposal and completing a dissertation.
