Course Description

What motivates people to behave the way they do? What makes a ‘crime’? What makes someone a ‘criminal’?

If you want to become a social scientist with the skills to make sense of issues relating to both crime and psychology, then Arden University's BA (Hons) Criminology & Psychology Degree is the course for you.

Both Psychology and Criminology aim to understand the world of social values and behaviours. But while Psychology looks at human behaviour in general, Criminology looks at criminal behaviour in particular. As well as the chance to study crime, criminal behaviour, the justice system and understand and predict the many factors involved in human behaviour, you will gain valuable analytical and research skills that will leave you highly employable.

With Arden's fully online Distance Learning programme, which gives you the flexibility of studying whenever and wherever you choose, you'll be taking the next step in your career in no time.
