**Take a step towards becoming a forensic psychologist on this specially-developed master’s, with a compulsory placement and development of counselling skills.**
This degree provides all the background psychological knowledge, professional skills and relevant experience you need to move confidently into forensic psychology work within the legal, criminal and civil justice systems.
You will gain up-to-date knowledge of psychological theory and practices, and develop the insights and skills to carry out research and development projects in forensic services, looking at governance, ethical, organisational issues.
You will also be introduced to the foundation skills of forensic psychology practice and spend time developing basic skills in counselling that can be applied in a variety of forensic settings.
The counselling element of the course, and a year-long placement, will help you acquire skills and experience which, compared with other forensic psychology courses, can greatly enhance your employability prospects.
This course is for graduates in psychology, who are interested in progressing to careers in the forensic services as practitioners, researchers or managers. It is also for those currently working in the criminal justice or forensic mental health systems, wishing to learn more about the theory and practice behind forensic psychology.
Thanks to the skills and relevant experience you gain, you will be well placed to secure work in the prison service, probation service, NHS, police or voluntary sector organisations.
