The degree is an ideal progression route for learners who have completed the College’s sought-after Level 3 Psychology, Criminology and Law course, as well as those who have either studied a similar course/A-Levels, have a passion for the subject and are looking to develop their career in the field.

Course lecturer, Aimee Clayden, explains: “This course has been developed with students at the forefront of design, responding to demographic needs and a growing necessity and enthusiasm for social enterprise. The BA Joint Honours in Criminology and Psychology will offer students a disciplined study of two extremely popular social sciences.”

Students will gain an understanding of mind, brain, behaviour and experience and the complex interactions between these. After graduating, students will be able to access careers in a variety of relevant fields such as law, criminal justice, and social welfare.

The course will offer students valuable experience when they undertake a work placement in the 2nd year that will provide them with industry-recognised experience.
