Forensic Psychology Staffordshire University

Undergraduate

Our Forensic Psychology degree covers criminality, crime investigation, and the roles of psychology and forensic science in the criminal justice system, alongside a wide spectrum of psychology.

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 psychology and criminology 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, in specific modules, use techniques such as fingerprint and drug analysis, eye-tracking and galvanic skin response.
