Criminology and Criminal Psychology

*Please note that the information set out on this website relates only to the full-time programme that commences in September 2018 * The BSc Hons Criminology and Criminal Psychology degree at Greenwich offers a unique fusion of two of the most exciting and relevant contemporary academic disciplines on offer at British universities. It provides a clear introduction to, and rigorous grounding in, both criminology and criminal psychology (subjects that have grown significantly over the past decade and are now recognised as specialist areas of knowledge in their own right), together with social policy, criminal justice and social welfare. This multidisciplinary approach offers a critical socio-legal and international perspective. You can study a varied range of issues, including offender profiling, stalking and psychopathology; representations of crime and detection in popular TV and film; imprisonment, prisoners and human rights; gender, race and discrimination; policing, drugs and organised crime; and security, terrorism, cybercrime and the criminology of war. You will gain an understanding of the nature, causes of, and reactions to crime and explore social and state responses and methods of control and prevention, encompassing major theoretical paradigms, applications and practices within the field of contemporary criminology. This is complemented by a comprehensive overview of criminal psychology. The programme will appeal to those with a keen interest in criminology, criminal psychology, criminal justice and applied social sciences, as well as to those considering future employment within the developing fields of criminal psychology or criminal justice. Others more interested in policy, research, and the social care and welfare professions of social work, mental health, youth work or child protection will also benefit from this degree. You will have the opportunity to apply to be selected to undertake a work placement in your final year of the full-time programme. If you are selected, you will work in an agency that is either part of, or complementary to, the Criminal Justice System. Students selected for the placement option will typically attend the placement for one day a week during the timetabled teaching weeks of the final year of the full-time programme. PLEASE NOTE: This programme does not provide British Psychological Society (BPS) recognition. Currently, the university's Department of Psychology, Social Work & Counselling offers an MSc Psychology conversion degree that confers Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the British Psychological Society to successful graduates from the BSc Hons Criminology and Criminal Psychology degree who are accepted onto, and who complete successfully, the university’s MSc Psychology degree.
