Program Description

Focus on knowledge and skills relevant to the real world. Examine the causes of offending behaviour, the effects of crime on victims and the operation of the criminal justice system. From studying international crime in Canada to examining street offences with Gloucestershire Police, you’ll graduate well-prepared for a career in forensic psychology or the criminal justice system. You’ll be taught by expert lecturers, including a leading homicide expert who advises the government, works with the police and makes regular media appearances, and Chartered Forensic Psychologists with a wealth of practice experience.

The degree is designed as a single coherent course, with lecturers with expertise in criminology and psychology working together to integrate insights from the two disciplines. You’ll have the flexibility to shape your own syllabus to suit your future plans, whether that’s qualifying as a forensic psychologist or joining the police service.
