Our Psychology and Criminology degree engages you with these disciplines in the world beyond university and explores their relevance to our everyday lives. Following the recommended curriculum of the British Psychological Society (BPS), you will engage with psychological theory and research, applying this knowledge to real-world issues. The criminology aspect considers what causes people to adopt deviant lifestyles or make criminal choices, exploring how crime might be prevented as well as the role of the police, courts and other agencies. You will acquire the interpersonal skills to work with offenders and victims in the criminal justice and community safety fields. This degree confers eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC), which is the first step toward becoming a professional psychologist.
