Psychology and Criminology (with Placement Year) - Staffordshire University

The BSc (Hons) Psychology and Criminology programme is fully accredited with the British Psychological Society, and on completion of the programme (with a minimum of a 2:2 degree) you will be able to claim Graduate Basis for Chartership, which is the first stage towards becoming a professional psychologist. At the end of your second year, you can choose to do a placement year. You can find your own placement, or our specialist placement team will work with you to find a suitable placement. This course is a useful blend of three disciplines, psychology, sociology and law. This gives you the best possible understanding of criminological issues from different perspectives. We offer some fascinating options for you to choose from, including the opportunity for you to earn credit towards your degree by gaining work experience through volunteering at Level 5. You can choose from a range of options, including options with an applied focus and specialist options informed by cutting edge research. As you move through the programme, you will develop the ‘Staffordshire Graduate Attributes’, designed to make you use your Psychology and Criminology degree to demonstrate a range of skills and attributes attractive to employers in the future. We offer excellent levels of support to our students, including a well-structured and supportive personal tutoring programme, with regular timetabled sessions with your personal tutor.
