Course summary

Our new CertHE Psychology and Criminology programme provides students with the opportunity to combine two popular subjects in order to develop an understanding of human behaviour and the mind alongside the study of the causes, consequences and prevention of crime. With accreditation being sought from the British Psychological Society* this degree will enable you to gain a critical understanding of criminal behaviour, human development, individual differences, cognition and social processes. You will also develop a range of research and employability skills across the degree. Criminology modules will explore why criminal behaviour occurs, how the criminal justice system operates, and how we can try and prevent crime. Psychology modules will explore personality and intelligence, attitude formation, aggression, forensic psychology, prejudice and discrimination. Throughout your degree you will be taught by experts in the areas of psychology and criminology, combining expertise from both the Academic Discipline of Psychology and Counselling and The Blue Light Academy.
