Is it safe to release violent prisoners early? Can sex offenders ever be rehabilitated? Can we prevent young people from getting involved in crime? Is prison effective? If you are interested in the answers to these questions, then study Forensic Psychology at Leeds Trinity University. Using our practitioner and academic backgrounds, we will help you to apply psychological theory to the study of criminal behaviour. Our lecturers have years of experience working within the Prison Service, Probation Service, NHS and the Ministry of Justice and we regularly invite leading professionals in the field to come and deliver specialist talks. As well as studying the core areas of Psychology, you will also cover a range of Forensic Psychology topics within your specific programme modules, such as: theories of crime; risk and treatment of violent and sexual offenders; forensic mental health; self-harm and suicide in prison; offending behaviour programmes. In your final year you can tailor your degree and choose options which may include the application of psychology to areas such as business, health, child development, counselling, mental health and sport psychology. In addition to this, Forensic Psychology students can choose to continue with an existing professional work placement and develop their employability skills further.
