BSc (Hons) Psychology with Criminology & Criminal Justice

Are you fascinated by the inner workings of the human mind and how this affects criminal behaviour? By studying Psychology in combination with Criminology, you’ll have the opportunity to explore why people break laws and how society deals with offenders.

Your Psychology with Criminology degree will comprise two-thirds psychology, with the other third in criminology. By studying two complementary subjects together, you’ll enhance your knowledge and skills to access a broader range of exciting career options. The Psychology with Criminology degree is recognised by the British Psychological Society (BPS) for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership, which is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist. You’ll also be eligible to apply for specialist professional training, provided you achieve 2:2 Honours or higher, thus further expanding your knowledge of this fascinating field and enhancing your employability.

A key element of our psychology degree is the hands-on experience you’ll gain via the Psychology Plus scheme. You’ll be offered clinical experience on campus and have access to a range of opportunities, including completion of specialist short courses, professional certificates and work placements – another great boost to your CV.
