Course content

This MSc Forensic Psychology focuses on the clinical and applied aspects of forensic psychology with an emphasis on working with children, adolescents and offenders with mental health concerns.

The programme has a clear emphasis on practice-based topics in forensic psychology. You will develop your knowledge of police investigative processes and considerations for courts and sentencing, while gaining knowledge and skills that are beneficial for working with different client groups, considering their assessment, risk level and treatment.

Our forensic psychology team draws on the expertise of a range of practitioners working in applied forensic psychology settings to provide specialist input into the programme.

This programme is accredited with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and for those with BPS Graduate Basis of Chartership (GBC), acts as Stage 1 training towards becoming a Chartered Forensic Psychologist.
