  • Course description
    The Psychology Department's internationally recognised Forensic psychology research group is one of the largest in Europe (particularly in the area of criminal investigative psychology) and is uniquely positioned to offer research training in this area. Building on this, this pathway provides a specialist ESRC-recognised MSc.

    In addition to the Core units shared with the MSc PRM, the pathway provides a double-weighted unit on The Psychology of Criminal Investigations plus an opportunity to conduct a dissertation project within this area under the supervision of an experienced researcher. Students successfully completing this pathway will gain the skills and techniques required for further study or a career in scientific research, and develop confidence and competence in tackling research problems through a broad range of practical experience and knowledge of appropriate research methods and techniques.

    The Department is internationally renowned for its research into criminal investigative and forensic psychology. The specialist ESRC-recognised MSc in Psychological Research Methods in Criminal Investigative Psychology complements the more practitioner-based MSc in Forensic Psychology by providing a substantial, formal masters level qualification in research training for suitably qualified graduates wishing to specialise in this area.

    Students are taught by experienced researchers in extensive new research facilities in the company of forensic psychology masters students and PhD students undergoing their required research training. The course has been designed for graduates intending to enter research careers and meets the Economic and Social Research Council’s Postgraduate Training Guidelines. 

    Attaining an MSc in an ESRC-recognised training programme is normally a prerequisite for students wishing to go on to study for a PhD, and interested students will be encouraged to apply for funding during the course of the year.
