Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and its functions. This fascinating degree will help you to learn about yourself and others by studying how the human mind works and how it affects behaviour. The study of Criminology at Roehampton explores peopleâs motivations behind criminal behavior and modern methods for counteracting crime in society. Our research in both departments is rated highly by the Research Excellence Framework.
On this BSc, you'll develop an excellent understanding of all the core areas of this inspiring field, including biological, social and developmental psychology. Our modules bring you the full spectrum of psychology â covering core areas such as Cognition, Neuropsychology, Social and Developmental Psychology as well as specialist fields such as Autism, Mental Health, Positive and Forensic psychology. You will be supported by our passionate psychology staff to think and write like a psychologist and work alongside criminologists to study crime, the criminal justice system and society's response to the impact of criminal behaviour. On this course, you will develop a critical understanding of how the criminal justice system operates and the relationship between punishments and crime prevention.
In Year three, you will have the opportunity to follow your interests and choose from a range of optional modules to learn more about biological psychology, and how the brain, nervous system and other physiological systems interact with mental functions and behaviour. You could choose to focus on psychopathologies, positive psychology and aspects of the self and identify, child development in the classroom, or criminal profiling and social media use in connection with psychological theory and practice.
You will be taught by enthusiastic and dedicated tutors, who also practitioners and often involved in the latest research. You will also benefit from our world-class library, specialist research equipment (including EEG machines and access to an fMRI scanner) and state of the art teaching facilities.
