In recent decades the psychological and criminological spheres have become inseparable and this course is designed to reflect this. It is aimed at people who want a BPS recognised psychology degree but who have a keen interest in the sphere of criminal justice and criminal behaviour.
The interdisciplinary approach of this programme allows you to draw links between the two subjects and apply psychological issues to real-life situations so that you get a true understanding of how the human mind works in relation to criminal activity.
BSc Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice (Hons) at Liverpool John Moores University course is taught across the Schools of Natural Science and Psychology and Law, so teaching takes place across two locations - the Tom Reilly Building and the £38million Redmonds Building.
The choice of careers open to you as a Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice graduate is extremely varied because of the wide range of vocational skills you will acquire on the course.
Examples of careers secured by recent graduates include trainee forensic psychologist, clinical support worker, police officer, trainee probation officer, probation service assistant, arrest referral and bail support team worker, drug and alcohol support worker, victim support worker, witness support worker, youth worker and cognitive behavioural programme facilitator for the prison service.
