Course content

Psychology at Kent offers a supportive, dynamic and diverse environment for creative research and learning across a range of areas in psychology. Forensic Psychology focuses on offending behaviour and court process issues, with specific areas of expertise including the treatment and rehabilitation of fire-setters, sexual harassment, and aggression and violence.

During your research, you are supported by a panel including a main and secondary supervisor. Your supervisors are individually selected for you based on their compatibility with your research interests. Typically, you meet with your supervisors more frequently at the initial stages of research than during the phases of data collection and analysis.

You receive training in research-specific and broader ‘transferable’ skills, including academic writing, career management and presentation skills. You also have the opportunity to train for an advanced teaching qualification (ATAP). The Advanced Statistics and Methodology module from our taught MSc programme is available for doctoral students that have not already completed an advanced statistics and methods course.
