The BA (Hons) Criminology & Psychology syllabus is divided equally between criminology and psychology. Initially, you will develop the skills necessary for interdisciplinary study to better understand the relationships between crime and society. It includes foundation learning on the criminal justice system and introductions to biological, cognitive, and developmental psychology. The course then moves onto practical applications including policing and police powers. It also covers how social identities and beliefs can influence the way people think and behave in different situations.
The final part of this bachelor’s examines the historical development of the youth justice system, the rise of cybercrime, modern theories on developmental psychology, and how psychological research is conducted. The concluding module is in preparation of an assessment in which you will have the chance to specialise in an area of the programme that most interests you. Tutor support will be provided, giving you the best opportunity to showcase your understanding of your specialised area to potential future employers.
