Module overview

This module encourages you to take an in-depth look at the way psychology has been used to explain and control crime. We will explore the way psychological principles can be applied to such issues as violence, murder, serial killing and the role of the courts. You will be given the change to critically reflect on both the topics covered and your developing understanding of the subject through lectures and seminar activities.
