Forensic Psychology

Summary: Forensic psychology applies psychology to the criminal justice system. As a forensic psychology student you cover all of the core modules included in the BSc (Hons) Psychology programme, along with specific modules relevant to forensic psychology. Course details: You consider different experiences of the criminal justice system – for victims, witnesses, defendants and legal professionals. You learn about the assessment and treatment of different types of offenders. You learn the theory and research behind police interviewing, and put it into practice in our mock police interview rooms. And you consider the role of jurors, witnesses and experts firsthand by taking classes in our replica courtroom. Our staff are actively involved in the practice of forensic psychology so you are taught topical issues by experts from this field. Excellent links with external organisations means that there may be opportunities for voluntary work. After the course: Although this is an academic course rather than a professional training course, on successful completion, with a 2.2 or above, you will be eligible to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) status with the British Psychological Society (www/bps.org.uk). As with all our psychology degrees, upon graduation you can proceed to further study in any area of psychology. However, the unique skills and knowledge developed on this course are particularly suited to the postgraduate training you will need in order to become a Chartered Forensic Psychologist. All programmes are designed to incorporate employability skills development alongside your degree course. Our staff utilise their extensive connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. In addition we offer a series of workshops and events in the first, second and third year that ensure all students are equipped with both degree level subject knowledge PLUS the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits. We also offer extensive support for students to find and secure sandwich year placements which have been shown to make have significant positive impact on a student’s career prospects on graduation. Our award winning careers service works with regional and national employers to advertise graduate positions, in addition to providing post-graduation support for all Teesside University alumni.
