Psychology & Criminology at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

Explore the complexities of the criminal justice system in our psychology and criminology degree. Understand the relationship between the mind and criminal behaviour. Begin an exciting career in psychology on a degree accredited by the British Psychological Society. We’ve complemented our psychology degree with the addition of criminology studies. So you can compare and contrast different perspectives in these two fascinating areas. You’ll investigate by asking why. Why do we use substances? And how. How does memory affect our ability to recall a crime? Our degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and is the perfect first step on your journey to becoming a chartered professional. Psychology puts every aspect of the brain and our behaviour under the microscope – how we learn, interact and use body language. In criminology, you’ll discover the nuances of criminal behaviour through insights into the inner workings of the justice system. Developing research skills is vital too. We’ll help you explore the latest methodologies. At the same time, you’ll develop career skills in creativity, critical thinking and communication. Outside the lecture theatre, we encourage you to get involved with our Psychology Society and look out for exciting opportunities to work with our experts on their latest research projects. Your psychology degree will be taught by staff who carry out world-leading research and are experts in their fields. This course is weighted towards psychology. When you finish, you’ll be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).
