The Forensic Psychology and Mental Health course at Coventry University is primarily for those who wish to continue in a career associated with forensic psychology and specifically work in forensic mental health settings, or with offenders with mental health issues.
Five core mandatory modules will be delivered alongside students on the three aligned MSc courses; MSc Forensic Psychology, MSc Forensic Psychology and Mental Health and MSc Forensic Psychology and Offender Rehabilitation. An additional three mandatory pathway modules will then be delivered solely to students on the MSc Forensic Psychology and Mental Health to specialise the content of each degree and differentiate them from each other.
According to the British Psychological Society, the largest single employer of forensic psychologists in the UK is the HM Prison Service. Psychologists can also be found employed in rehabilitation units, secure hospitals, the Social Services, conducting research in University Departments and working in private consultancy.
There are two stages to becoming a practising Forensic Psychologist and Chartered Member of the BPS; requiring a combination of professional education and practice. In the first instance, you need the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC), followed by an accredited Masters in Forensic Psychology, such as this course.
