Throughout the Criminal Psychology programme from University of Essex Online, you’ll develop your own knowledge of the scientific and theoretical underpinnings of psychology, including its historical origins, progression and limitations.
You’ll also develop an awareness of the variability and diversity of functioning and its significance in criminal psychology, specifically in relation to offender profiling.
And finally, you’ll also recognise a range of influences on psychological functioning and how these are conceptualised across the two core discipline areas of social psychology and cognitive psychology.
In addition to gaining the subject-specific knowledge, you will also develop a wide range of transferable, career-related skills including the ability to evaluate evidence, identify patterns of behaviour and how to confidently communicate and discuss issues in a professional environment.
A Certificate of Higher Education in Criminal Psychology is the perfect way to improve your CV and potentially get ahead in your career in a short space of time. Throughout the programme, you’ll improve your skills in communication, computer literacy, data interpretation, problem-solving and self-motivation.
The programme can be the first step towards a career in criminal justice, security, marketing, research, academia or business.
