On this Forensic Psychology (Hons) course from Teesside University, you develop essential skills to work in sectors such as prisons, rehabilitation units, secure units, courts, police, probation, education, charity and voluntary, research, and government policy, and with victims, offenders and professionals. 


Forensic psychology applies psychological knowledge to the understanding of criminal behaviour and the criminal justice system. You study core psychological areas, and specific forensic psychology modules.

You consider different experiences of victims, witnesses, defendants, and legal professionals within the criminal justice system. You examine different types of crime and criminals such as, violent, and sexual offending, female offenders, youth offending, as well as contemporary issues including terrorism and cybercrime. You focus on how individuals give best evidence by learning the theory and research behind police interviewing and consider the role of jurors, witnesses, and experts first-hand by taking classes in our replica courtroom.

Top reasons to study this course

  • Your teaching team includes experts who are active researchers and practitioners so you are taught topical issues by experts from this field.
  • Module assessments develop your knowledge and experiences of practical tasks relevant to working in forensic psychology.
  • You experience simulated learning in our replica courtroom and police station.
  • Opportunities for work experience or a work-related learning project, including Volun-tees, across criminal justice areas such as drug projects, probation and victim support.

Career opportunities

Although this Forensic Psychology (Hons) is an academic course rather than a professional training course, on successful completion, with a 2.2 or above, you will be eligible to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) status with the British Psychological Society. 

As with all Teesside University's psychology degrees, upon graduation you can proceed to further study in any area of psychology. However, the unique skills and knowledge developed on this course are particularly suited to the postgraduate training you will need in order to become a Chartered Forensic Psychologist.


This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society.
