Forensic Psychology - MSc

Course Description

Forensic psychology is one of the significant areas of development in contemporary psychology. Forensic psychologists work in, or with, the prison services, special hospitals, secure units, the courts, the police and social work, probation and community mental health services; others are employed in academic or commercial settings.

The MSc Forensic Psychology is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and is aimed at graduates with a psychology degree. It provides an important step towards professional practice and chartered status in this field. The parallel MSc Psychology in Forensic Settings offers professionals from different, related backgrounds, the opportunity to undertake training across the same subject areas but does not lead to an externally accredited psychology qualification.

Taught by academics from the Departments of Psychology, Criminology and Law, these programmes will help you adopt an independent, analytical and evaluative approach to learning and practice. In addition to the expertise within the academic community, the programmes are always increasing their strength through links with practitioners in the field of forensic psychology.


The programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as the Stage 1 on the route towards Chartered Status and membership of the Division of Forensic Psychology.

Career Opportunities

Career opportunities are excellent and can range from application of psychological techniques to the detection, assessment and treatment of offenders, to advising on selection and training of staff and the development of services.
