The Forensic Psychology course at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) explores both victims and offenders. It follows the progression of an offender from their first contact with the criminal justice system until their eventual release into the community of transfer to conditions of less security. The role of ongoing assessment, intervention and throughcare is emphasised throughout.
You’ll learn from staff and practising Forensic Psychologists (both NHS and HMPS) who are actively engaged in research and who regularly publish in leading forensic journals and present papers at both national and international conferences.
