About Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice at Liverpool John Moores University

In recent decades the psychological and criminological spheres have become inseparable and this course is designed to reflect this. It is aimed at people who want a BPS recognised psychology degree but who have a keen interest in the sphere of criminal justice and criminal behaviour.

The interdisciplinary approach of this programme allows you to draw links between the two subjects and apply psychological issues to real-life situations so that you get a true understanding of how the human mind works in relation to criminal activity.

Throughout the programme you will study the core foundations of psychology such as developmental, cognitive and social psychology whilst also studying modules such as 'an Introduction to Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice' and ‘criminological theory’ which aim to develop your understanding of the relationship between the disciplines of psychology and criminal justice. You will also study criminal justice modules every year which will develop your knowledge of the relevant systems, processes and agencies involved in this sphere.

In your final year you will study modules specialising in forensic psychology at all three levels of the programme, and in your final year, you will be able to choose from a suite of optional modules which allows you to tailor your studies around your personal academic and vocational interests. Work-related learning and practical experiences are incorporated across the programme allowing you to develop transferable skills that are essential in the workplace.

This extremely popular course is taught across the Schools of Natural Science and Psychology and Law, so teaching takes place across two locations - the Tom Reilly Building and the £38million Redmonds Building.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
