Solent University (Southampton) has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Are you interested in how psychological theory has helped inform and shape the field of criminology? This varied course gives you the opportunity to focus on both of these overlapping disciplines, combining a broad understanding of psychological principles with insights drawn from a study of criminology and the institutions of criminal justice.
Psychological and criminological study at Solent starts with our programme of lectures and guest speakers. Past students have benefitted from talks delivered by criminal justice professionals and psychology practitioners, giving detailed insight into the industry and the careers it offers. Previous speakers include Martin Fisher, consultant forensic psychologist with NOMS, and Adam Murton, forensic psychologist.
This programme also encourages students to develop a range of interpersonal and verbal communication skills through presentations, role-plays, debates, interviews with participants and group work. You will also develop your written communication skills through your research reports.
The course team themselves have a wide range of professional expertise and experience. This has helped past students to secure work placements with relevant external organisations.
Think you might like to learn more about criminology and its roots in psychological theory? With an understanding of the social, psychological and economic factors that contribute to criminal behaviour, graduates will be well positioned to pursue further study in the area or apply for relevant graduate positions.
