About the course

Study the nature of crime in society and gain an understanding of crime and criminal behaviour from a number of different perspectives on this truly fascinating course. Psychology and Criminology are completely separate topics that complement each other well. 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. 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 investigate 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.
