Our Forensic Psychology degree covers criminality, crime investigation, and the roles of psychology and forensic science in the criminal justice system, alongside a wide spectrum of psychology.
If you’re interested in criminal attitudes and want to investigate how psychology can help us to understand criminal behaviour, this course provides an excellent basis for a career in psychology and criminology related areas.
Taught from our multi-million-pound Science Centre, our facilities include an observation room, psychology labs, cutting-edge equipment and a crime scene house.
You’ll complete group and individual projects, develop your presentation skills and, in specific modules, use techniques such as fingerprint and drug analysis, eye-tracking and galvanic skin response.
On successful completion of study, we will issue one of the following awards dependent on your chosen pathway: BSc (Hons) Forensic Psychology, BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies - Students who choose not to, or who are unable to, follow an accredited route can transfer to BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies
Professional body accreditation
The BSc (Hons) Forensic Psychology programme is accredited with the British Psychological Society (BPS) meaning that successful completion of this programme (with a minimum of a 2:2 degree) will enable you to claim Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) after graduation, which is the first stage towards becoming a professional psychologist.
