Psychology with Forensic Psychology

Psychology is the study of people: how they think, act, react and interact. Psychologists scientifically study all kinds of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivations underlying behaviour. Psychology examines questions such as: how do people act on a first date? How can we ease the effects of parental divorce on children? How can we make teams work efficiently? How can we help people to overcome depression or phobias? By collecting information about what people do, think, perceive and feel, psychologists answer questions about human behaviour, cognition and development. This programme offers the full scope of a psychology degree but with an additional focus on Forensic Psychology. Forensic Psychology applies psychological theory to understanding criminal behaviour, reducing offending, and understanding victim responses to offending behaviour. It also examines how psychology plays a role in the criminal justice system more generally.
