This course is designed to provide students with a deep understanding of both general psychological theory and its application in criminal and forensic settings. You will be exposed to a wide range of applied and research topics, along with students studying general psychology, and will then be given the opportunity to learn about the applications of this knowledge in forensic settings.
Why do people commit crimes? This course aims to help you answer that question. In the final level (your third year if you study full time), you will get to choose a number of optional, specialist modules. We run a slightly different range of specialist modules each year, depending on staff expertise. Please view a list of our staff, staff list. Other information about the department is here.
