Title Forensic and Criminal Psychology

Welcome to the world of criminal and forensic psychology.

Have you ever watched crime shows on TV and wondered why people do criminal things? Or what a career as a forensic or criminal psychologist would be like? In this presentation we look at both.

We explore some reasons for why people do criminal things. We also look at why some people stop breaking the law before adulthood, yet others carry on their criminal careers into adulthood.

We look at what a typical day is like for a forensic or criminal psychologist working in a prison, working for the police or a lawyer, working in a research centre, or teaching at colleges or universities.

We will assess how criminal psychology is portrayed in books, films and on TV, and we consider how accurate this is.

Finally, we look at what type of qualifications you need for this role and how you can gain these qualifications.
Learning outcomes
  • Understand what criminal and forensic psychology is (and is not)
  • Understand some key factors for why people become criminals
  • Understand the different types of careers in criminal and forensic psychology, and what qualifications you need
