This engaging British Psychology Society (BPS) accredited course combines a comprehensive training in psychology with the study of criminal behaviour, types of crime and knowledge of the criminal justice system. Our students benefit from academic experts, weekly research seminars and have access to dedicated undergraduate laboratory suites.
This course covers all the core areas of Psychology stipulated by the BPS curriculum. This accounts for two-thirds of the course and includes the workings of the brain, the processes and mechanisms of human thinking, feeling and behaviour and how psychologists, psychological research and therapy can make a tangible and positive difference to society and people's lives. The remaining third considers the social-cultural implications of crime and criminality and the contexts in which crimes are committed and understood. Core modules may include: Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to the Criminal Justice System, Understanding Crime and Society, Research Methods in Psychology, Statistics One, Explaining Criminal Behaviour, Cognitive and Biological Psychology, Penology, Policing, Psychology Research Project and Advanced Psychology. In your final year you will also be able to select an optional Psychology module and an optional Criminology module. 97% of BSc (Hons) Psychology with Criminology full-time students agree that staff are good at explaining things (National Student Survey 2018).

Nottingham is an absolutely amazing town, with the best student club ever, the Ocean. You’ll never hear the Baywatch theme the same way again. There’s a really nice student vibe, a ‘friendly’ rivalry between Nottingham U, Batman’s house, and three pubs claiming to be the oldest pub in Britain (that serve cheap pints to boot). The library is also amazing, with loads of study space, and the SU threw loads of great events, and I joined a few fantastic societies that really helped me experience all the uni had to offer.
