Course content

Our MSc in Psychology with Law aims to give students a scientific understanding of the theories and principles underlying psychology, alongside an insight into processes of relevance to the justice system.

Very few masters courses currently available in the UK combine these two subjects, and so graduates will be able to offer employers a unique set of subject knowledge and skills.

The course is particularly relevant to students interested in pursing a career in the criminal justice system, policy making, government, human rights, management, forensic psychology or to continue further education to complete postgraduate qualifications and conduct research.
