Course overview: This course includes an integrated foundation year, ideal if you don’t have the appropriate subjects and/or grades to go straight into year one. Criminology is the study of crime, human rights and the criminal justice system at the individual, social and global level. You examine the contribution that psychological perspectives and methods can make to our understanding of crime and the criminal justice system. As a psychology with criminology student, you cover core modules included in the BSc (Hons) Psychology programme, in addition to specific modules in criminology. By studying psychology with criminology you consider the impact that society and the media have on crime rates and public perceptions of crime. Like our other psychology degree programmes, the analytical and communication skills you develop on the course are prized by employers in a wide range of careers. This degree provides an excellent academic background for a variety of stimulating careers in psychology and criminal justice agencies as well as in research, education and in a wider variety of voluntary and statutory organisations. After the course: Although this is an academic course rather than a professional training course, on successful completion, with a 2.2 or above, you will be eligible to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) status with the British Psychological Society (www.bps.org.uk). As with all our psychology degrees, upon graduation you can proceed to further study in any area of psychology. However, the unique skills and knowledge developed on this course are particularly suited to careers in health and social welfare, the probation service, the prison service, the police and voluntary organisations.
