Forensic Psychology

**What factors can drive someone to violence, what is a psychopath, how can you support a victim of crime, and how do you help rehabilitate an offender? These are just some of the questions considered by forensic psychologists.** As a forensic psychologist, you can help unpick the tangled web of influences that lead to a criminal act. Beyond detection, forensic psychologists can also help to heal the fractures in society through rehabilitating offenders, providing support for victims and informing the work of fellow professionals within the criminal justice system. As one of only a few specialist Forensic Psychology courses in the country, at Worcester you will gain a comprehensive grounding in both forensic psychology and biology, and how they contribute to our understanding of criminal behaviour. As well as developing the skills you will need to work with both perpetrators and victims of crime, you will also study how research contributes to policy enhancements that improve the criminal justice system, leading to a more just society. - 100% overall student satisfaction for Forensic Psychology (NSS 2017) - Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), giving you the opportunity to gain Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) - the first step to a career as a psychologist - Study the core psychological principles, alongside specialist business psychology modules, giving you the flexibility to keep your options open and choose the path that best matches your interests as they develop - Excellent facilities including a new psychology computer suite and state of the art eye tracking technology
