- Take a Volunteering for Psychology module in your third year at a variety of local forensic providers linked to the University, such as the prison - Learn psychological research methods, including some lab skills - Choose from a huge range of optional modules, to develop your own interests in more depth - Apply psychology to criminology to gain an expert understanding of criminal behaviour - Benefit from teaching staff who have a wide range of expertise and a strong research base - Our campus is friendly and compact with a community feel, offering first-class, sustainable facilities for learning and teaching. Have you ever wished to take an armchair habit further and seriously study the workings of the mind and criminal behaviour? Our versatile and innovative course gives you the opportunity to do this by focusing on both of these overlapping disciplines to gain deeper insights into the way people think and the motivations for criminal behaviour. Psychology with Criminology at Winchester gives you a solid grounding in the study of human thought and behaviour combined with a contemporary view of key issues around crime and criminal justice systems. Together these two complementary fields provide you with the skills and knowledge to succeed in a wide range of fulfilling careers where you can really make a difference. In Year 1, you examine different approaches within psychology – personality and individual differences, social, developmental, cognitive and biological – illustrating how they lead to distinct perspectives on key research questions, and to the methods psychologists use to answer these questions. You are also introduced to the main areas within criminology, classic criminological theory, the police, and law and policy. In Year 2, you continue your study of different qualitative and quantitative research methods and study one field of psychology in greater depth. You also study criminological theory more thoroughly, as well as violent crime, prison management and the punishment of crime and your choice of options examining Criminal Justice, Criminological Identities and Writings on Crime, Morality and Deviance. In Year 3, you choose from a huge range of fascinating optional modules, giving you the scope to develop your own interests in greater detail. The Extended Independent Study gives you the chance to research and write up an extensive project with tutorial support. Due to the wide range of skills, and the rigour with which they are taught, training in psychology is widely accepted as providing an excellent preparation for many careers. In addition to subject knowledge, Psychology with Criminology helps you develop skills in communication, numeracy, analysis, teamwork, critical thinking and independent learning — all of which are highly valued by employers. During the course, you also acquire skills of gathering data using quantitative and qualitative methods, synthesising and interpreting evidence and assembling arguments, presenting evidence and formulating findings and conclusions. Graduates pursue careers in health and social care, policing, probation and related professions, such as social and youth work, education and public sector work. If you wish to pursue professional careers in psychology, you will need to undertake a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited conversion course after completion of your degree before being eligible to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) status.
