This engaging British Psychology Society (BPS) accredited Psychology with Criminology degree combines a comprehensive training in Psychology with the study of criminal behaviour, types of crime, and knowledge of the criminal justice system. Our students benefit from over 80 academic experts and weekly research seminars, and have access to first-class laboratory suites.
The course covers all the core areas of Psychology stipulated by the BPS curriculum. This accounts for two-thirds of the course, and includes the workings of the brain; the processes and mechanisms of human thinking, feeling and behaviour; and how psychologists, psychological research and therapy can make a tangible and positive difference to people’s lives and society. The remaining third of the curriculum considers the social-cultural implications of crime and criminality, and the contexts in which crimes are committed and understood.

Psychology qualifications tend to be very popular with all employers because they demand an ability to communicate effectively in both spoken and written forms (through verbal presentation and the writing of essays and reports), an ability to solve real-world problems, and well-developed numerical skills.

Further study or training may be required for some of these roles.
