Our Forensic Psychology degree covers criminality, crime investigation and the roles of psychology and forensic science in the criminal justice system. If you’re
interested in criminal attitudes and want to investigate how psychology can help us to understand criminal behaviour, this course provides an excellent basis for a
career in criminality-related areas. Taught from our multi-million-pound Science Centre, our facilities include an observation room, psychology labs, cutting-edge equipment and a crime scene house. You’ll complete group and individual projects, develop your presentation skills and use techniques such as fingerprint and drug analysis, eye-tracking and galvanic skin response.
