Program Description

Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Master in Forensic Psychology and Mental Health (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, with a focus on forensic mental health.

The Master in Forensic Psychology and Mental Health (MSc) has a specific emphasis on mental health issues in criminal populations and the role of psychologists working in forensic settings. It covers diverse topics such as the theoretical basis of forensic psychology across a range of settings, and through all stages of the criminal justice process. However, there is a specific focus on mental health and offending.

The aim of the Master in Forensic Psychology and Mental Health (MSc) is, upon successful completion, for you to have gained an understanding of the influence mental health can have on how people think, feel and act, as well as the opportunity to consider how our criminal justice system can respond to people committing crime, and those being victimised.
