Course content

Our specially-developed blended learning master’s offers the added convenience of being able to complete your studies alongside your current employment.

With a strong applied forensic focus, you will be highly sought after for psychology work in prisons, and related settings, when you graduate.

Forensic psychology training

As a forensic psychologist, you will work directly with offenders on treatment and rehabilitation programmes, and be involved in psychological interventions designed to modify criminal behaviour. You may also be called upon to give evidence to expert audiences, including courts, and parole and mental health boards.

This course covers all the main areas of knowledge, and practical skills you will need to move into this area of work, and, if you are not already in such a position, it will provide guidance on securing a trainee position.
