About

This Psychology (Criminal Behaviour) (Hons) from University of Wolverhampton is designed to provide students with a deep understanding of both general psychological theory and its application in criminal and forensic settings.

Overview

You will be exposed to a wide range of applied and research topics, along with students studying general psychology, and will then be given the opportunity to learn about the applications of this knowledge in forensic settings.  

Why do people commit crimes?  This Psychology (Criminal Behaviour) (Hons) from University of Wolverhampton aims to help you answer that question.   In the final level (your third year if you study full time), you will get to choose a number of optional, specialist modules. We run a slightly different range of  specialist modules each year, depending on staff expertise.

Career

A number of our graduates go on to train as Clinical, Counselling or Forensic Psychologists, to work in the NHS as trainee cognitive behavioural therapists, or to work in other helping professions such as social work. If you are interested in pursuing a career in the police force, intelligence services, or prison service, you may find this specialised route particularly appealing.

However, by choosing this specialist course, you will not be restricting your future career opportunities either within or outside of psychology and in addition have the respect conferred by a BPS-accredited degree. Each year, our graduates go on to apply the knowledge they have gained with us to a wide range of jobs in the private, public and non-profit sectors.
