Program Description

Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Master in Forensic Psychology (MSc) is designed to provide you with a thorough grounding in the theory, themes, issues, and practical skills considered to be central to forensic psychology.

The Master in Forensic Psychology (MSc) includes foundational topics such as the theoretical basis of forensic psychology across a range of settings and risk assessments associated with forensic psychology.

You will have the opportunity to study a range of topics associated with forensic psychology, including offending behavior and the Criminal Justice System. You will also explore theories, research, and practice related to intervention with diverse client groups, with a specific focus on violence and sexual offending.

Throughout the Master in Forensic Psychology (MSc) you will investigate what makes people think, feel and act in ways that lead to crime, and how Criminal Justice System can respond to this.
