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.
On successful completion of study, we will issue one of the following awards dependent on your chosen pathway: BSc (Hons) Forensic Psychology, BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies - Students who choose not to, or who are unable to, follow an accredited route can transfer to BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies.
