Bangor University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
On this course, as well as studying general psychology modules, you will specialise in understanding the psychological factors behind why people may commit criminal or deviant behaviour. You will use critical skills and evidence, based on research, to explore how forensic psychologists may contribute to debates on policing, crime, the criminal justice system and rehabilitation. Some examples of the factors that you may explore are; substance abuse, mental health disorders, as well as exploring the incidence of offending behaviours in different populations, e.g., children and youth. As well as understanding some of the reasons why people may commit offending behaviours, you will also explore the ways in which forensic psychologists can work to treat and rehabilitate offenders
For details of the modular structure, please see the course description on Bangor University's website.
