Program description

BSc Honours Psychology with Criminology

Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and the human mind. At Middlesex University Dubai, we offer a solid grounding in modern psychology – a body of theoretical and practical knowledge concerning human behaviour and experiences. This programme combines a broad education in psychology with a specialist strand to develop an understanding of psychological aspects of criminal behaviour and legal system.

You will focus on the systems and theories that underpin both psychology and criminology, culminating in the submission of a portfolio of research and knowledge. This degree allows you to combine the study of criminology with modern scientific methods of psychology so you can gain an understanding of criminal behaviours and their effects. Graduates of the programme will be eligible and well-prepared to undertake specialised postgraduate training to become qualified to practice as a forensic psychologist and work along with the legal and justice system.

Combining Psychology with another Discipline

This Honours degree programme offers students a solid grounding in Psychology but also allows some specialisation in complementary areas through the various pathways available. The programme is specifically designed for those who wish to investigate and support the psychological elements of legal proceedings in court and criminal investigations. The psychology programme has a strong focus on the practical investigation of human behaviour, culminating in the opportunity to undertake an independent piece of research in the final year.
