Psychologists study people’s behaviour, motivations, thoughts and feelings. Criminal psychologists, in particular, attempt to understand and explain criminal behaviour, and studying criminology develops an understanding of the personal and social aspects of crime, motivation, victimisation and responses to crime and deviance. Students of psychology and criminology develop skills in generating and evaluating evidence, making reasoned arguments and ethical judgement which are useful in many careers. This course develops a wide range of skills that span science and the arts and are highly valued by a variety of employers and applicable to careers both within and beyond Psychology. The British Psychological Society (BPS) Career Destinations Survey (BPS, 2016) found that Psychology graduates are readily recruited to a wide range of jobs as well as post graduate study. The proposed course is designed to prepare students for specialism at post graduate study or research e.g. clinical, forensic psychology, forensic science as well as a range of post graduate careers. Psychology and criminology students are ideally suited to careers in the police, probation, prison service, security services, local and central government, social work, youth work, public policy, offender charities, housing, mental health support, victim support, drug rehabilitation and social research.
