This double degree will give you insights into crime and the criminal justice system. In the psychological science component, you’ll develop an understanding of human behaviour and the variables that affect it, which will help you understand how people can get caught up in the criminal justice system. In the criminology and criminal justice component, you’ll study crime trends and learn how crime can be analysed and prevented. You’ll have the option to complete a professional practice placement one day a week in your final year to gain experience in a justice-related workplace.
