This course aims to explore what makes people commit crime and to identify the factors which may predict criminal behaviour.
Psychology is the study of approaches that explain peopleâs thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Criminology is the study of why certain behaviours are criminalised and what predicts these behaviours. This course draws from both disciplines to further your understanding of crime and criminals.
In years one and two, you will learn about research methods and the statistical analyses that researchers use.
In year two, you will be required to complete work experience with an external organisation and learn about research methods and the statistical analyses that researchers use.
There is the opportunity to complete the course over four years by applying for a year of work placement or to study abroad on the Erasmus programme.
By your ï¬nal year, you will have been taught how to design and conduct your own research. You will then do this and analyse and present your results in the form of an independent project in an area of your choice.
You will spend a signiï¬cant proportion of your ï¬rst two years studying the key areas of psychology, including:
* Biological Psychology
* Social Psychology
* Cognitive Psychology
* Developmental Psychology
* Individual Differences.

I would highly recommend Coventry, I've only been there for a couple of weeks but I'm happy and I think it's a nice place. The uni includes core textbooks in the tuition fee which has been very helpful as I haven't had to spend a lot of money buying books. The accomodation is nice and affordable and most of them are close to the uni.
