Program Overview

Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), this course provides you with a thorough grounding in the theory, themes, issues and practical skills central to forensic psychology, with a focus on forensic mental health.

This course is designed to cover the British Psychological Society’s Division of Forensic Psychology's (DFP) core curriculum. However, it has a specific emphasis on mental health issues in forensic populations and the role of psychologists working in forensic settings.

  • It covers diverse topics such as the theoretical basis of forensic psychology across a range of settings, through all stages of the criminal justice process. However, there is a specific focus on mental health and offending.

  • The aim of the course is, upon successful completion, for you to have gained an understanding of the influence mental health can have on how people think, feel and act, as well as the opportunity to consider how our criminal justice system can respond to people committing crime, and those being victimised.

  • Our teaching and learning is designed to encourage your participation and deepen your understanding of specific subjects. For example, by debating and discussing topics such as the effectiveness of prison in reducing reoffending behaviour and the ethics associated with risk assessment.
