The University of Liverpool, and its School of Psychology, has drawn upon its global reach of international practitioners and academics to create its first online postgraduate programme in the field of forensic psychology and criminal investigation.
Our MSc in Forensic Psychology and Criminal Investigation is designed for individuals currently involved in the process of criminal investigation, or for those who have an active and passionate interest in the psychology of crime, criminals and investigation.
Graduates will be aware of the issues, skills and techniques required to become a highly competent psychology professional, or to apply psychological principles in their careers. The initial core modules of the programme cover the principles of leadership, critical incident management and crisis intervention, team effectiveness, judgement and decision making.
Modules include Psychology of Criminal Behaviour, Sexual and Violent Crime, and Offender Profiling and Criminal Behaviour Analysis.
Our students develop the skills and techniques required to become highly competent psychology professionals, or to apply psychological practices in their own area of work. Graduates of the course go on to senior positions within a variety of professions in the public and private sectors, in roles ranging from crime analysis, police psychology and fraud investigation to health and safety inspection, law enforcement and probation services.
