Forensic Psychology and Crime
Applicants should hold the equivalent of a 2.2 undergraduate degree in psychology. Consideration will be given to degrees in relevant subjects such as science or social sciences provided relevant psychology modules have been studied. Applicants whose 1st language is not English should have an IELTS 6.5 overall, with no component lower than 5.5. Pre-sessional English is available if required.
Modules include: psychological explanations of criminal behaviour; research methods in psychology; violent crime; criminal and civil justice responses to crime; psychology in forensic decision making; practice and contemporary developments in forensic psychology; risk assessment and offender programmes; introduction to the English legal system; dissertation in forensic psychology.
A range of assessment methods is used, including essays, practical reports, literature reviews, practice-based reports, oral presentations and examinations, many of which develop important transferable skills for forensic practice. The purpose of the dissertation module is to contribute substantially to the research training aim that is appropriate to a taught Master's programme.
