Why study BA Criminology with Psychology Honours at Middlesex University?

The Criminology Department at Middlesex has enjoyed a national and international reputation for over 30 years. Studying the Criminology with Psychology Honours course at the Middlesex University allows you to integrate and apply psychology to criminology to gain an expert understanding of criminal behaviour.

This course helps you to make the connection between the wider criminal justice issues and how the individual psychology of subjects can play a part in it. You'll take general courses in both criminology and psychology, making you a specialist in both areas. While you dive deep into the criminal justice system and how and why people commit crimes, you'll also learn a variety of psychological theories including sports psychology, social psychology and more.

Course Highlights

  • The course is designed by academics who are active researchers in the Crime and Conflict Research Centre and integrates the study of both criminology and psychology on practical and theoretical levels
  • You’ll become a specialist in both areas, along with taking a deep dive into the criminal justice system and learning a variety of psychological theories
  • You’ll have the option to take on a paid placement relevant to your studies in your third year
  • We’ll help you build your network using our industry links at organisations like Interpol and HMP Bronzefield

Career Opportunities

  • The degree is an excellent foundation for a career within a wide range organisations, such as the police, the National Offender Management Service, Jural Legal Services, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Court Service, and local government community safety, youth services, housing and environmental services, and drug and alcohol support services. While a degree in Criminology with Psychology will ordinarily lead to employment within the general field of criminal justice, the skills of data research, critical analysis, oral, written and visual communication, reasoned debate, understanding theoretical concepts, and policy analysis can be transferred to many other areas of employment.
  • Many graduates have also gone on to develop careers in a wide range of third sector organisations including those that deal with victim support, offender and drug rehabilitation, and community based private projects often with the young and the elderly.
