About Psychology with Forensic Psychology at University of Lincoln

The BSc (Hons) Psychology with Forensic Psychology degree at Lincoln aims to provide students with a level of specialised knowledge in Forensic Psychology, as well as an understanding of key concepts and practices in Psychology in general.

Forensic psychology is concerned with understanding the patterns, motives, mindsets and behaviours of people who commit crime. This relates to the processes of investigation, understanding different types of criminal behaviour, and the impact on victims and witnesses. In addition, the degree content aims to focus on the criminal justice system in relation to the courts and post-conviction forensic settings, such as prison, probation and forensic mental health.

On this degree, which is informed by the latest theory and research in the field, you have the opportunity to develop a holistic understanding of the field and the chance to gain knowledge and an understanding of the range of skills required to work in forensic settings.

Students are expected to gain a realistic insight into the day-to-day work of a Forensic Psychologist and an appreciation for the knowledge and skills needed to achieve success in this career path. The course aims to place this in context through regular lectures by experienced, practising Psychologists. A range of Forensic Psychologists, Clinicians and Practitioners from different forensic services also contribute to the course.
