    Hey all, I am just a bit confused. I am planning to study within the area of psychology but Im not quite sure of the name. I want to work within a prison with criminals, focusing on rehabilitation and overcoming problems such as addiction and other psychological issues. I think its a different area but I would also like to work at building up profiles of certain criminals to aid crime prevention. Does anyone know what the name of the course would be at uni to get me into this area of work? Thanks

    Do a straight Psychology degree, take more criminal modules through the course to make sure you still want to do it and then do a Masters in it.
