Course summary

Forensic Psychology is located at the intersection between Psychology and Criminology. The discipline involves applying evidence-based practice underpinned by psychological theories to improve the experience and outcomes of individuals who come into contact with the criminal justice and penal systems. Students on this course will explore core psychological areas, such as Biopsychology, Cognitive psychology, Developmental Psychology, Individual differences, Social psychology, and research methods alongside carefully curated criminology courses which link psychological theory to the criminal justice environment, offender behaviours and issues of forensic investigation. This programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), such that students gaining at least a Lower Second Class Honours Degree are eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the BPS, which means you will have taken your first step towards becoming a professional psychologist. Why study this course?
