Ready to explore the mysteries of the mind? Want to understand criminal behaviour? Well, why not become an expert in both areas.
Our joint honours degree programme is perfect for anyone seeking a core understanding of psychology, the fascinating biological, developmental and social ideas underpinning it, and how it can be applied to understanding the criminal mind.
Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), a qualification recognised by major employers throughout the country, you’ll benefit from an industry-focused course through tailored modules, guest speakers and workshops.
Why study this subject?
Our BSc (Hons) Psychology and Criminology course sheds light on the contexts in which crime and social life are discussed. Having criminology as a secondary discipline brings a sociological perspective on crime to core areas of psychology.
Not only will you build an understanding of yourself and of others that can help you in everyday life, but you’ll also learn valuable skills that will attract any future employer. You’ll get to know the psychological reasons behind crime and learn about the criminal justice system. You’ll develop your analytical mind, understand human motivation and nurture your own curiosity.

What will I study?
This course will give you insights into social diversity and inequality. You’ll understand their implications for crime and the criminal justice system. You’ll also learn about the ethical issues related to working with vulnerable people in the criminal justice system or researching problems identified in crime and victimisation.
You’ll study fascinating subject areas like development and social psychology, criminal law and justice, cognitive processes, biological psychology, victimology and interpersonal violence. You’ll also get to grips with how to run your own research experiment through our research skills and methods modules.
In your final year, you’ll have the opportunity to deep dive into a specialist area you’re really passionate about by completing an empirical dissertation.
