The Course

This MSc focuses on case formulation and the applied aspects of forensic psychology. There is an emphasis on working with different groups, including children/adolescents, violent or sexual offenders and those with forensic mental health concerns.

The programme has a clear emphasis on practice-based topics in forensic psychology. You will have the opportunity to develop your knowledge of police investigative processes and considerations for courts and sentencing, while having the chance to gain 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.

You will have the opportunity to conduct a research project alongside academics who are active researchers in their fields. Areas of expertise amongst staff include understanding deception and interviewing skills, sexual desire and sexual offending, and online sexual exploitation material.

How You Study

The composition and delivery for the course breaks down differently for each module and may include lectures, seminars, workshops, independent study, practicals, research and one-to-one learning.

Most teaching will take place on Monday and Tuesday for full-time students. However, meetings and assessments may take place on other days. Students are expected to engage in at least 2-3 hours of independent self study for each contact hour.
