Study both subjects equally in your first year and then choose which you want to major in. Whichever direction you take, this dual degree will give you a strong grounding for lots of interesting careers.
Why study criminology with psychology?
By studying crime, with the science of the mind, we can get a deeper understanding of how crime impacts individuals and society.
Exploring people's attitudes, beliefs and behaviour by looking at the theories, policies, processes and relationships that influence them is a crucial part of helping us develop better forms of crime deterrent, support and rehabilitation.
The knowledge base and skills these subjects give you will set you up strongly for many careers.
Why study at UWE Bristol?
BSc(Hons) Criminology with Psychology is split equally between criminology and psychology, so you'll study both before choosing which to major in.
Supported by staff who are leading practitioners and active researchers, you'll study specialist modules, and get a deep understanding of crime, criminal justice, offenders and victims.
Apply theories and the latest research to real, contemporary issues.
Learn how to think critically, write reports, interpret data, formulate arguments, and make ethical judgements.
You'll carry out your own research, hear from guest speakers, and take part in work-based learning through our links with organisations such as Bristol Young Offenders Scheme, Bristol Youth Education Service and the police.
Activities such as volunteering, placements and internships will deepen your professional skills and knowledge further, to make you highly sought after when you graduate.
Where can it take me?
