Course content

The Criminology with Forensic Psychology Masters at Middlesex in London combines core modules in criminology and forensic psychology with optional modules on topics including terrorism, drugs, trans-national crime, conflict, and the major institutions of criminal justice.

The Forensic Psychology component of the Criminology with Forensic Psychology Masters is delivered by specialists within the Psychology department whilst the criminological core and optional modules are drawn from the longstanding and internationally known MA Criminology: Crime, Conflict and Control.

The course will be of special interest to those without a first degree in psychology (typically a requirement on Masters course in Forensic and Criminological Psychology) but with a particular interest in psychological perspectives on crime and criminal justice. Based at our Hendon Campus in London you will benefit from some of the UK's most innovative and up-to-date teaching in criminology and Psychology.

Course highlights:
Students on the MSc have the opportunity to attend common study sessions with postgraduate criminologists studying in universities across Europe including Athens, Barcelona, Ghent, Hamburg and Rotterdam and also at John Jay College in New York.
