About the course

Study the nature of crime in society and gain an understanding of crime and criminal behaviour from two complementary perspectives on this truly fascinating course. Psychology and Criminology are separate disciplines that complement each other well. During Year 1, you build up your basic knowledge and skills in both Psychology and Criminology, which are quite distinct subjects that involve developing different, though related, skills. Psychology is an investigative science, involving practical classes and report-writing, as well as acquiring knowledge and critically examining evidence. Criminology is a social science and so you will be expected to read independently for seminars, and contribute to discussions and debates. For those achieving a Lower Second Class degree or higher and successfully completing the independent research project, will achieve BPS status. Alternatively, after Year 1 you can choose to specialise, by transferring to any one of our other Psychology routes or by pursuing a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice. Year 1 (delivered at Burnley College): The standard full time tuition fee rate for this course in 2023/24 for Home and EU students is £9000 per year. Year 2 and 3 (delivered at UCLan): The standard full time tuition fee rate for this course in 2023/24 for Home and EU students is £9250 per year. The standard full time tuition fee for the Foundation year for this course in 2023/24 is £6000.
