Our Forensic Psychology Master’s degree is designed to prepare you with knowledge and skills required for a career in a forensic setting. While we will do some myth busting around the glamorisation of this field, expect to be as fascinated by this topic as you will have imagined. The team responsible for your learning and development throughout this course all have extensive experience working with the police, prison service and the NHS.
Everything we teach has applied significance – we will share research and practice with you which has been developed ‘in the field’, providing an experience which will feel as though you are on the cutting edge of developments in this area. The BPS accreditation means that by obtaining this MSc, you will be completing the first stage in your professional training required to become a qualified practitioner and an accredited Chartered Forensic Psychologist.
This course is being submitted to the British Psychological Society (BPS) for accreditation.
What you should know about this course
How you will learn
In a typical week, learning takes place through a combination of lectures and seminars. You will be able to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller group sessions.
Contact hours normally take place three days a week and fall between 9am and 5pm, depending on your tutorials.
Information coming soon.
Outside of timetabled sessions, you will need to dedicate time to self-study to prepare for coursework, presentations and exams. Our library and online resources will support your further reading and research.
You can also join a range of student societies, including the Psychology Society.
Your overall workload consists of contact hours (lectures, seminars, etc), independent learning, and assessments. For full-time students, the workload should be roughly equivalent to a full-time job. For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of modules you are studying.
Assessments are varied and may include essays, critical reflections, library reports, presentations, research posters, seen and unseen exams, and practical reports. The final assessment is a dissertation project.
Information coming soon.
