The MSc Forensic Psychology course at Coventry University will provide you with an opportunity to obtain a broad overview of the discipline and relevant settings, so that you can develop a future career trajectory based on your experience of the course curriculum and skills development.
You will have an opportunity to study a range of topics associated with forensic psychology, including offending behaviour and the criminal justice system. You will also explore the theories, research and practice related to intervention with diverse client groups, with a specific focus on violence and sexual offending.
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 (assuming BPS accreditation is approved).
