Overview: The combination of Criminology and Psychology offers a fascinating and complementary programme of study. Through this degree, you will be provided with: the opportunity to learn about factors influencing human experience and behaviour; an introduction to criminological theories and the nature of crime in society; and an understanding of crime and criminal behaviour from a number of different perspectives. During the programme you will build up your basic knowledge and skills in both Criminology and Psychology, which are quite distinct subjects that involve developing different, though related, skills and knowledge. Psychology is an investigative science, involving practical classes and report-writing, as well as acquiring knowledge and critically examining evidence. Criminology is a social science, therefore you will be expected to read independently for lectures and seminars, and contribute to discussions and debates as part of your studies.
