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.
