Crime begins in the mind. As do responses to it. Gain a thorough understanding of the human mind, developing a psychologist's ability to analyse and evaluate, while also discovering the theoretical and policy issues relating to crime.
One of the aims of this degree is to give you the skills to gather, analyse and evaluate data about people’s behaviour and thoughts. In coming to understanding how crime is dealt with, your studies will draw on disciplines such as social policy, sociology, psychology and law.
You'll benefit from cutting-edge facilities such as electroencephalography (EEG) equipment for measuring brain activity, a brain simulation lab, eye-tracking laboratory and a baby lab. Thanks to our links with criminal justice agencies, you’ll get the chance to develop your learning through work placements and experience-enhancing visits.
As part of this programme, you can also spend a semester at one of our European partner universities (including universities in the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Italy, Hungary and Malta). This programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society. Graduate with a 2:2 or above and you are entitled to become a graduate member of the society, putting you on the pathway to qualifying as a Chartered Psychologist.
