The overall aim of the BA (Hons) Criminology & Psychology enables you to study two well established fields in social sciences. Both fields are set out to understand the social world which encompasses social values and behaviours. While Psychology studies human behaviours in general, Criminology focuses on criminal behaviours and social orders in particular.

 

You are to spend equal time on Criminology and on Psychology. Therefore, you are to acquire knowledge, understanding and a range of practical skills relating to both disciplines. At the same time, you will develop a range of transferable skills that will aid you as you pursue Law-related and other careers or further relevant study. More specifically it will:

 

  • Provide a study of the foundations of criminological theory and perspective and a firm grounding in psychological studies by covering most of the core areas of Psychology.
  • Provide you with a sound educational experience that will enable you to acquire a solid grounding in criminological thinking and principles, which will embrace all the subject specific abilities, transferable intellectual skills and key skills set down in the current Criminology and Psychology Subject Benchmarks for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
  • Stimulate you into adopting an enquiring and critical appreciation of Criminology and Psychology as well as developing an appreciation of the national and international contexts in which the Criminology operates.
  • Stimulate you into a critical and scientific minded social scientist who can competently handle both criminological and psychological issues.
  • Encourage you to accept responsibility for your own learning, as well as to support you to learn independently using initiative and self-discipline.
  • Provide you with the support you require in order to enhance your eventual employability through taught skills, teaching methods and assessment, our values and the Arden Graduate Attributes within the programmes.
  • To provide opportunities for development of personal and other key skills appropriate for graduate employment or further postgraduate studies.
