BA in Criminology And Criminal Justice And Psychology (Full Time)

Bangor University

Bachelor Degree , Criminology

Course Description

This course provides you with the opportunity to study two main subject areas; Criminology and Criminal Justice. Criminology examines theories and evidence relating to crime, criminals and victims, while Criminal Justice studies explore the various responses to crime and victims, from informal to formal legislative measures of social control and crime prevention; and examine the way in which the criminal justice system works - from policing through to imprisonment.

This psychology degree course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). 

This ‘pure psychology’ course will allow you to gain a scientific understanding of the basic processes by which we learn, think, feel and adapt to our social conditions.

The course covers the investigation of behaviour from infancy to old age, and deals with the biological, social and individual factors that affect human psychology. This course offers you the widest possible choice of modules, which enables you to tailor your study as your interests develop.

The first year of the course is designed to provide a broad introduction to the study of psychology. It is designed to provide a thorough grounding in the subject for those with no Psychology background while allowing those who have already studied Psychology to increase the breadth and depth of their understanding. The second year continues on the same basis enabling graduates to cover all the core topics to be eligible for the BPS Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership. Year three completes your BSc with a major research project and an in-depth study of at least four topics selected from the full range of modules that are currently available.
