Psychology is the study of the human mind and our behaviour, while Criminology is all about the causes of crime and ways to prevent and control it. This is a unique degree covering both British Psychological Society accreditation and QAA standards for Criminology, which will allow you to study both psychology and criminology, and will equip you to understand human motivation and behaviour and apply that insight to legal and criminal contexts, opening up an exciting range of career opportunities once you graduate. At Westminster, we have a solid background of teaching and research in these highly desirable subjects. We take an international perspective and draw on our expertise related to human trafficking and issues connected to the Global South. We make the most of our long- established links with key partners in the criminal justice and forensic psychology areas to enhance your student experience. This includes links with a number of local Magistrates Courts and the Central Criminal Court, Broadmoor Hospital, victim support at the Old Bailey, HMP Pentonville and HMP Whitemoor, Feltham YOI, and the Metropolitan Police, all of which offer opportunities for educational visits and/or work placements. We make full use of our central London location. Learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom, with visits to the theatre and museum, field walks and opportunities for work-based learning.
