Crime is one of the major problems facing society today. To understand the complex issues surrounding it, we have brought together two areas of study that have a natural affinity, giving you a degree that will help you make a real difference.
Psychology is about people and focuses on the study of the human mind and behaviour. Criminology involves analysing crime and deviance, exploring a wide range of issues from the nature of criminal justice systems to the role of the media in representing and influencing crime. Together these two areas will provide you with the skills and knowledge to succeed in a number of careers.
The Psychology and Criminology course will equip you with a theoretical understanding of human behaviour and you will apply the skills you learn to a varied range of innovative assessments. The course has been designed with a clear emphasis on employability and incorporates valuable practical activities (e.g. courtroom observation, museum visit, police station visit), core skills (e.g. writing skills, presentations, group collaboration), and workshops from experts in the field (e.g., Forensic, Educational, and Occupational Psychologists).
For more information on this course, please visit the Salford City College website.
These are the fees you will pay whilst studying at the college, you will pay the standard tuition fees for the period when you are studying at the main University of Salford campus.
By relating a psychological understanding of human behaviour and development to an analysis of crime and deviance, you will be able to gain a comprehensive grasp of the ways in which crime can be analysed, understood and addressed. The degree has a hands-on approach to developing research skills and encourages you to apply the theory you have learned to everyday situations.
