The Double Degree in Psychology and Criminology and Security students at Abat Oliba - CEU University must have an interest in how the mind functions, working with people, criminology and security.


Why study at the UAO CEU?

1. Double qualification

Abat Oliba - CEU University is a pioneer in the methodology that allows students to combine two qualifications and gain two degrees in five years. The Degree in Criminology and Security is taught in a blended learning format, allowing students to combine it with their Psychology studies.

This Double Degree in Psychology and Criminology and Security combines an all-round psychology education with theory on criminology and security. Furthermore, it applies this knowledge to practical experience, so students become specialists in both fields. This will undoubtedly broaden the professional horizons of students in the field of crime prevention and investigation.

At UAO CEU, students gain the necessary skills to easily and confidently move into the profession. They have the support of experienced professors with vast knowledge on the psyche and human behaviour, as well as crime prevention and investigation. Furthermore, they have years of experience in various areas of practice and above all, a strong desire to lead by example, transmitting the values that characterise a true professional.

2. Methodology

A teaching model based on practical and individualised training that allows students to link theoretical knowledge with professional practice through real internships in companies, schools, hospitals and daycare centres, as well as workshops and practical seminars.

It promotes an active, entrepreneurial attitude among students, like the creation of Grupo Psykhé. The group organises the Annual Day of Psychology Students, in which, through different subject areas, students present a project or study they have created during their degree to the public. This reinforces early research work and valuable experience for public presentations.

3. Professional empowerment

The Degree in Criminology and Security includes qualifications from the advanced course in Private Security Management and the qualification in Private Investigation, both accredited by the Ministry of the Interior and aimed at the professional training of private security managers and private detectives, respectively.
