In an age of global insecurity there is increasing demand for professionals, practitioners and researchers who can work across disciplinary boundaries and engage with complex problems in crime causation and management.
By studying this Psychology Law degree from University of London, you will:
- gain advanced critical thinking skills and the ability to identify and solve complex problems in a range of psychology law and public policy environments.
- develop an extensive, policy-oriented and vocationally relevant knowledge of psychology law and criminal justice.
- demonstrate a systematic understanding of the causes of crime and offending in the criminal justice context.
- demonstrate a sound knowledge of the texts, theories and methods used to enhance understanding of the issues, processes and phenomena within the criminal justice system.
You will develop skills that are applicable across a range of roles in public sector organisations including, but not limited to, central government, the police, the courts, prison and probation services, charities that work with offenders or victims of crime and social welfare services.
In some countries, qualifications earned by distance and flexible learning may not be recognised by certain authorities or regulators for the purposes of public sector employment or further study. We advise you to explore the local recognition status before you register, even if you plan to receive support from a local teaching institution.
