Apply core psychological theories and concepts to understand criminal behaviour and the legal system. Examine violent offending such as murder, harassment, cyber and sexual crime. Graduate and work with prisoners, offenders and victims of crime. This course integrates the core areas of psychology. This approach is especially beneficial for forensic psychology where all aspects of the discipline are relevant to the profession. In addition to the British Psychological Society (BPS) core areas that you will study, you will also take an integrated perspective to examine criminality and legal issues. You will develop vital skills for forensic psychology such as using psychometric tests and working with other disciplines.
