Instead of studying psychology and criminology as two separate subjects, you can now study them together and gain a deeper understanding of both – including the ways in which they impact on each other. Explore the connections between psychology and crime on our fascinating degree course. We start by looking at the main principles of psychology and criminology. Following that, you can choose from a huge range of optional modules, giving you the freedom to explore your own interests in more depth. You’ll learn about criminal profiling and how it offers insights into youth offending, gendered violence, genocide, rape, abuse and other types of crime. You’ll look at media representations of crime, and the promotion of fear. And you’ll focus in detail on social and development psychology, and the effect it can have on crime and the people who commit crime. Our specialist laboratories give you the chance to gain extra insight, as well as practical skills. Measure electrical currents in the brain by using electrodes on the scalp in the EEG (electroencephalography) lab; and analyse samples and use them to investigate the relationship between psychological and physical health in the psychoneuroimmunology lab. Our staff are active researchers and you’ll be in regular contact with them. You’ll also have the opportunity to go to extra-curricular weekly seminars, which feature presentations from academics and researchers who are leaders in their fields.
