Program Overview

Course Overview

What motivates people to behave the way they do? What constitutes a criminal? Why do people commit crimes? This inter-disciplinary criminology and psychology degree covers a range of fascinating and thought-provoking modules, such as crime and society, the criminal justice system and the inequalities of the modern world. Perfect for students who want to explore both discipline areas, this course is the ideal stepping stone to your future career goals. 

While studying your criminology and psychology degree, you’ll aim to understand the world of social values and behaviours, building a solid foundation in both disciplines. This degree allows students to go on a real journey - from understanding the theories behind committing a crime and how the crime is treated in the legal system. If you’re passionate about debating and discussing the views of society and criminal influences, then you’re in the right place. 


What can a criminology and psychology degree do for me?

This degree gives students a voice. The aim of studying criminology with psychology is to gain a solid understanding of two well-established fields. Both of which are set out to recognise social values, the criminal justice system and human behaviours. While studying, you will: 

  • Develop your knowledge of criminological theory and psychological studies

  • Acquire a solid grounding in criminological thinking and principles

  • Adopt an enquiring and critical appreciation of criminology and psychology 

  • Develop an appreciation of the national and international contexts of criminology

  • Become an analytical social scientist who can handle both criminological and psychological issues of the modern world

  • Reflect on what works and what doesn’t in the justice and legal system

  • Apply your knowledge and experience to real-life scenarios
