Forensic psychology is the application of psychological knowledge to criminal behaviour and the justice system. This degree focuses on all the core information that underpins our knowledge of human behaviour. The programme is designed to give you the foundations in psychology that will then allow you to expand and branch out to more specialised forensic psychological understanding. Our exciting and highly stimulating Forensic Psychology course will equip you for a future career in the courts or the wider criminal justice system. Your arena will be crime in all its forms as you bring your wide knowledge of psychological theory to bear upon the behaviour of offenders. Building from the broad grounding we’ll give you in basic psychology, you’ll specialise in analysing the relationship between psychological and social factors and criminal or deviant behaviour. You’ll also investigate how the criminal courts approach their dealings with suspects and defendants, victims and witnesses. A degree in forensic psychology will help you build a career in organisations such as the police, the probation and prison services, youth offending teams, and drug referral and treatment agencies. It will also put you in a good position to apply for the specialised postgraduate training needed to become a practising forensic psychologist.
