The MSc Criminology and Criminal Psychology programme provide students with the conceptual knowledge and skills to open up diverse career paths. Core courses will enable you to develop an understanding of the concepts, theories, methods and principles central to criminology and the skills to apply these in the forensic and legal area. Option courses build on this core grounding and enable you to develop an empirical insight in an area of your choice, culminating in a research project. This approach provides you with knowledge of the changing nature of psychology, law and criminology, and professional applications. It will also develop your ability to relate theory to practice in a way that provides more informed solutions to problems, and opportunities in the workplace. There are a valuable research grounding and a broad coverage of criminological, forensic and psychological approaches to crime and criminality.
