Course content

The only of its kind in Scotland, this programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society and designed for graduates with a psychology degree. It is your first step towards chartered status and membership in the Division of Forensic Psychology.

The parallel MSc Psychology in Forensic Settings offers professionals from different, related backgrounds the opportunity to undertake training across the same subject areas, but it does not lead to an externally accredited psychology qualification.

Your programme draws on expertise within academia and GCU’s strong link with active practitioners to give you thorough and relevant training in the field – including instruction in the psychological, forensic, criminal and legal issues that will inform and influence your future career.

You’ll learn to adopt an independent, analytical and evaluative approach to forensic psychology – and become a part of our thriving and diverse academic community. Here, you’ll be encouraged to build a future that truly serves the common good, whether you’re helping detect and treat offenders or advising on staff and services development across a wide range of fields.
