The BSc (Hons) Criminology and psychology course is ideal for students who want to understand the relationship between crime and social issues – such as mental health, ill health, poverty, and discrimination and develop an understanding of how the human mind works.

The combination of criminology and psychology will give students expertise in both disciplines. Students will form them to critically analyse and evaluate the causes and effects of crimes and deviant human behaviour.
