Modules & assessment

Year one, core modules

  • Adventures in Crime News and Criminology
    Humans are both fascinated by and afraid of crime. This module will introduce you to exploring and defining how crime shapes our thoughts, drawing on its portrayal in the media, as well as responses generated through political shifts and crime prevention/community initiatives. You’ll examine the criminal justice process as well as crime data (statistics, case studies, crime rates etc) and the sources from which they're gathered. We’ll engage you in the components of the Criminal Justice process through a student-facilitated case study, which will enable you to identify with many of the issues that are obscured or misrepresented when thinking of everyday crimes, as well as present them in a reflective and developmental style. Your assessments will allow you to demonstrate understanding and begin to develop critical thinking skills (through an essay), understanding and application skills (through patchwork texts) as well as an opportunity to reflect upon and relate the knowledge gained to employment in the Criminal Justice Sector (through your Portfolio/diary).
  • Adventures in Criminal Justice
    Building on ‘Adventures in Crime News and Criminology’, in this module we’ll introduce you to the somewhat abstract components of the criminal justice process. You’ll explore and analyse sections of the criminal justice system, paying particular attention to how it fits together under the National Offender Management System within five main sub-systems: law enforcement, courts, youth justice, prison and probation. Each week, you’ll examine and develop a portfolio relating to freedom, human rights, net-widening, retribution, rehabilitation, politics and prevention of crime. The portfolio will provide an opportunity for you to recognise and begin to critically evaluate the effectiveness of the criminal justice process, based on contested evidence and research. As a result, you’ll be able to demonstrate a critical appreciation of the complicated position and treatment of offenders in England and Wales, as well as the challenges faced by policy-makers and criminal justice staff.
  • Fundamentals of Cognitive Psychology
    Our experience of the world is an interpretation based on many cognitive processes being carried out by the brain. Because these processes are so automatic, and their outcome so convincing, people are often not aware that what they are experiencing is merely an interpretation, and as such can be inaccurate. You’ll be challenged to think more clearly about this, and consider the ways in which the brain constructs its interpretation of the world, and the ways in which this interpretation can be misleading. You’ll gain a broad understanding of cognition and how we process information about the world by introducing the major issues underpinning cognitive psychology, drawing attention to the key conceptual and ethical considerations of research in the area. Throughout our module, several key issues will be repeatedly addressed, e.g. the interactive nature of cognitive processing, and the core role of empirical research in developing cognitive theory. You’ll learn about; Visual perception, Learning, Attention, Memory, Language, and Problem Solving. This module is delivered through a combination of lectures and practical based sessions during which you'll be given the opportunity to carry out classic experiments supporting major theories in cognitive psychology. You’ll be taught how to write up research using APA format, your ability to do this will form part of the assessment for the module. A multiple choice examination is used to assess your general understanding of the module material. You’ll be provided with insights into your own cognitive processes (such as learning and memory) which you can apply to help in your study and understanding of other parts of your degree. It'll equip you with a range of key transferable skills useful in the workplace, such as report writing, data analysis, and logical thinking.
  • Key Skills for Psychology
    Psychology is a broad discipline and most psychologists specialise in relatively narrow areas of expertise. However, all psychologists share basic skills in understanding, conducting and communicating research and this module aims to give you a grounding in these skills. Psychology is driven by empirical research - we start with a question of interest, formulate an hypothesis which we wish to test, design and implement a study to test the hypothesis, analyse the results and discuss the findings. You'll gain the basic skills needed to produce a research report from beginning to end including experimental design, statistical data analysis, the use of resources and software, writing and presentation skills, ethical issues and general study and research skills. This module provides a vital grounding for Psychology students as well as offering a range of useful, transferable skills such as data analysis and report-writing which are valued by employers.
  • Media and Crime
    Media representations of crime, law and order have always been a matter of public interest, as well as debate amongst people involved in the criminal justice system. You'll explore the ways in which media shapes our perception of crime and provides an overview of the theoretical perspectives on media within criminology. You'll study the construction of crime news and the role of politics and ideology and introduces the concept of 'moral panics'. You'll also address sex crimes and their fictional and factual representation in the media. You'll examine ways of analysing available statistics on criminal activity, the fear of crime and its relationship to the media representation of crime and discuss contemporary surveillance culture.
  • Social and Developmental Psychology
    Gain an introduction to key topics, theories and issues in social and developmental psychology. You’ll understand how certain behaviours and experiences can be shaped by different social contexts, such as family, peers, society, and the impact of these on social and emotional development. You’ll cover key areas within social psychology, such as attitudes, interpersonal communication, social influence, groups, identities and ethics. As well as key areas in developmental psychology, such as genetic and environmental influences, language, cognitive and emotional development and ethics. You’ll also consider methodological issues, and conceptual debates that characterise social and developmental psychology and applications of the work of social and developmental psychologists.

Year two, core modules

  • Research Techniques for Psychology
    Develop a critical understanding of data collection and analysis for psychology, and consider the theoretical bases of various qualitative and quantitative methods. You’ll focus on theoretical, conceptual and ethical issues and we’ll ensure that you understand the logic behind the techniques covered. Your learning will use practical and real-life examples and you’ll also work on a group project, designing an independent piece of research in an area you’re interested in and producing a research portfolio. You’ll attend a combination of lectures and lab-based practical sessions, with semester 1 focusing on quantitative data analysis techniques, and semester 2 focusing on a wider view of a range of qualitative and quantitative methods and tests. You’ll gain numerous transferable, research and analysis skills, such as numerical skills, use of SPSS, IT skills, experimental design, report writing, group work, research using the library and internet databases, and oral presentations.
  • Psychopathology
    Gain an introduction to psychopathology and clinical psychology and various psychological disorders, as well as their aetiology and treatment. Focus on at models of psychopathology, as well as its classification and diagnosis. You’ll touch on broad theories of the development of the various psychological disorders and draw from psychodynamic, cognitive, and neuroscience perspectives, as well as social factors. You’ll learn about the various psychological disorders through a series of lectures and seminars and use case studies and media examples to apply real-life examples.
  • Trials and Errors
    Identify and analyse the elements involved in the criminal justice process that can contribute to a miscarriage of justice and recognise the available procedures that can correct such errors of judgment. Evaluate principles of current criminal proceedings and identify the various stages within the system, such as sentencing procedures and outcomes. You’ll consider a range of problems and identify how some events could have been avoided and examine a variety of legal case studies, paying particular attention to the processes involved and evaluating legal decisions and the appeal system. You’ll take part in weekly lectures and seminars, including prepared debates and discussion relating to real life cases that have attracted the attention of the media.

Year two, optional modules

  • Crime and Place: Geographic Criminology and Crime Mapping
    You’ll be introduced to the issues and concepts central to an understanding of geographic or environmental criminology. In the first part of the module, key definitions, issues and concepts associated with the field are introduced. Then we spend some time examining how offenders use the environment and explore the various theories and models that have been put forward to explain the processes involved in offence location selection.
  • Cultures of War and Peace
    War can be understood as an actual, intentional and widespread armed conflict between political communities, and this module examines the contexts in which 'conflicts' can be translated into 'wars' and vice versa. Through a 'Cultural Criminological' lens this module explores some cultural, historical, political, philosophical, legal and sociological explanations of wars, in order to appreciate the disparate perspectives that exist in many given contexts. Cultures of War and Peace will offer you a range of issues through which to evaluate the conduct of governments and international bodies, combatants and non-combatants, 'terrorists' and 'freedom fighters', allies and 'the enemy'. You’ll learn to contrast 'political' violence with other forms of violence in order to distinguish the now-common term 'terrorism' from related concepts such as revolution, riot, and rebellion. This module also examines the theory, practice and politics of peace. You’ll evaluate the changing characteristics of the environments in which peace-keepers operate, the role that peacekeeping plays in a local and global context and the major challenges facing peacekeepers in the future. This module is taught by weekly interactive seminar/workshops and assessment is based on a poster presentation.
  • Issues in the Professional Practice of Psychology
    In this module, you'll develop an awareness of the moral and practical implications of being a professional psychologist. You'll be encouraged to reflect on the assumptions and limitations of the knowledge base guiding the practice of psychology, and to consider their implications. The module provides an understanding of professional skills of specific relevance to psychology, including professional codes of conduct and ethical behaviour in research and practice; planning research and writing a research proposal; bibliographic search strategies and effective literature review; working collaboratively in research; scientific publishing - how it works; communicating scientific results using different methods and to different audiences; personal and career development. You'll have the opportunity to acquire skills which are key to your development should you wish to pursue a career in psychology, but which are also of relevance if your career interests lie elsewhere.
  • Learning, Memory and Perception
    Underlying all psychological functioning is the ability to perceive, remember, and alter our behaviour in response to information in the world. These basic psychological processes of perception, memory and learning were the first areas of study for empirical psychology and this module examines both the historical development of these areas as well as the current state of knowledge in each area. You'll develop an overview of principles of associative learning including the principles of operant and respondent conditioning and the distinction between contiguity and contingency in learning. We'll also consider how the principles are applied in practical situations such as the treatment of phobias. The underlying neurophysiological mechanisms of memory as well as cognitive models of memory is presented. Experimental findings of short-term, long-term, implicit and explicit memory, as well as problems of memory encoding, organisation, retention and retrieval is addressed. Disorders of memory associated with brain injury is discussed. Models of visual perception and attention is discussed and experimental findings on change blindness, object perception and face perception is evaluated. We'll also consider the effect of learning and experience on perception as well as some of the neuropsychological impairments which can affect perception.
  • Personality, Intelligence and Psychometrics
    You'll develop an understanding of key contemporary approaches to the study and assessment of personality and intelligence. You'll examine the assumptions behind theoretical approaches to personality and intelligence; the nature of personality and intelligence; the theory of psychometrics; the strengths, implications and limitations of different approaches; and the applications of theory. You'll link theoretical approaches and develop basic skills in understanding and using psychological tests. As well as acquiring a detailed knowledge of major theories of personality and intelligence you'll develop an awareness of the social and ethical implications of the measurement of individual differences and skills in problem-solving and evaluation.
  • Project Preparation
    We’ll prepare you to carry out a major project in your final year, including skills in selecting a suitable project, using relevant sources of published information, literature surveys, writing a literature review and creating a project plan. During this self-managed module you’ll plan your project and regularly meet with your supervisor, who will give you advise and review your progress. You’ll also gain experience of projects by having the opportunity to listen to the project presentations by final year students.
  • Violent Crime, Body and Mind
    Investigate the study of violence from a range of perspectives, including criminal and legal, psychological, medical and biological. Explore a range of expressions of violence, and the sanctions that are employed through the criminal justice system. In addition, you’ll examine the concept of evil and how rehabilitation or punishments are juxtaposed against such an idea. To demonstrate your knowledge, you’ll complete an essay relating to theoretical explanations of violence and a portfolio, encompassing a structured classroom debate.

Year three, core modules

  • Clinical Psychology
    This module will give you a critical awareness of the issues and debates involved in understanding deviant behaviour. We’ll examine the psychological, social, cultural and biological influences and predispositions on general definitions of abnormality and specific disorders. We’ll study particular categories of disorder, in order to illuminate controversies concerning the value of models, methods of classification and diagnosis. We’ll look at specific syndromes in detail, including: major depression and mania, schizophrenia, and suicide. For each of these specific disorders we’ll review the diagnostic criteria, course, epidemiological factors, biological predisposition and treatment strategies (such as cognitive behaviour therapy, psycho-pharmacological treatments, and suicide prevention). You’ll learn that multiple factors can contribute to the development of mental illness and that often different psychiatric syndromes can co-occur in one patient. We’ll explore the role of social factors such as gender and culture, as well as biological origins in the classification and treatment of mental ill-health. We’ll enhance your lectures by video demonstrations of patients with different forms of mental illness and discuss them as case studies. This module will prepare you particularly for working in clinical settings (i.e. with psychiatric patients).
  • Comparative Criminal Justice
    There have been some profound economic, political and cultural developments in the world since the late 1980's and they have added to the complex relationship between crime, punishment, social change and the maintenance of order. In many countries, prisons numbers are dramatically increasing, yet in others they are emptying at an equally rapid rate. Some countries deal with overcrowding by building more prisons, others have waiting lists for up to a year. Some countries favour capital punishment, others outlaw it. Crime statistics are gathered in a wide range of methods and the age of criminal responsibility ranges from seven to eighteen, depending on where you live. In this module you'll examine the ways different countries and jurisdictions deal with the main stages and elements in the criminal justice process, from crime rates and policing through to sentencing. We'll explore examples from all over the world, with a particular focus on Europe, the UK, the United States and Australasia.

Year three, optional modules

  • Atypical Development
    We'll introduce a variety of developmental disorders including Downs' Syndrome, Williams' Syndrome, dyslexia and autism, and analyse the biological, cognitive and social profiles of each. You'll gain an insight in to the main symptoms of each clinical condition and the prognosis for people with these disorders. We'll do this by discussing published literature and studying symptoms of children and adults with these disorders in video demonstrations. We'll also cover the effects of early brain injury, and problems in the assessment and diagnosis of developmental disorders. You'll also consider ethical issues and working with clinical populations. You'll learn to critically evaluate contemporary issues in neurodevelopmental psychology supported by a range of academic literature. This module will be particularly useful for you if you're considering a career related to development, educational or clinical psychology or a career working with typically developing children or children with special needs.
  • Criminal Psychology
    The psychological study of crime, criminals and victims within a legal framework is known as criminal or forensic psychology. Our module examines the role that psychology and psychological perspectives can play in the criminal justice process. Particular attention is paid to the application of psychology to police investigations including the collection, examination and utilisation of investigative information and evidence as well as to the role of the psychologist in the court room. You’ll explore the different ways criminal psychologists contribute to police training, investigations and interviewing as well as their contribution to understanding evidence in the courtroom and how juries process that evidence. The challenges and pitfalls of giving such advice is also examined and evaluated. You’ll be required to contribute each week primarily through the completion of practical tasks and exercises. These exercises will utilise actual case studies designed to familiarise you with the types of criminal cases and associated outputs produced by criminal psychologists in a 'real world' setting.
  • Critical Issues in Health Psychology
    You’ll develop a critical awareness of issues and debates surrounding health, illness and disability. Standard clinical and medical models of illness and disability are seen as only one of several competing ways of making sense of health, illness and disability in contemporary society. Our module presents a range of broadly social, critical perspectives on our understanding of health, illness and disability. These include how illnesses and disabilities are commonly represented in contemporary society, and how this may influence individuals' experience of illness and disability; the social model of disability which views disability as a relationship between an individual and the constructed environment; the experience of stress among healthcare workers. Critical consideration is given to how poverty, class, culture and gender are factors to consider in health psychology. Our module, while primarily a critical health psychology module, draws on material from a broad range of disciplines including clinical psychology, psychiatry, social psychology, sociology, and public health. This module is delivered by lectures and seminars and assessment is by a portfolio based on the preparation and facilitation of student-led seminars and short critical essay based on a chosen topic.
  • Emotion
    What are feelings? Are they reducible to brain states or are they something different from mere neurophysiological activity? Questions such as these overlap between two areas of research: emotion and consciousness. Emotions are a dominant feature of human mental life, and they impact upon our behaviour, our cognitive processes, our social relationships, and our phenomenal experiences. In the last 15 years there has been a renewal of interest in both emotion and consciousness in psychology. You’ll be provided with an overview of some of these exciting new developments in emotion and consciousness research, as well as some historical background as to how these topics have been treated in psychology. You’ll learn through 11 lectures and four seminars; and be assessed through a 90 minute exam and one 1500 word essay. You’ll learn through a series of student-led debates based on classic issues and controversies in both emotion and consciousness research. Examples of the kinds of debates which may be included are: can science explain consciousness?; are emotions biological states or cultural constructions?; are unconscious emotions possible? You will present one side of such a debate in small groups, and then write a coursework essay based on one of these debates. On successful completion of the module you'll gain skills of critical evaluation: particularly, the ability to independently evaluate evidence to support conclusions, and the ability to investigate contradictory information and to identify reasons for contradictions. You'll also gain skills of: oral and written communication; interacting within a group and managing conflict therein; and autonomous learning - particularly, taking responsibility for your own work and being able to criticise it. By the end of the module the answer to the question 'what are feelings?' may perhaps be uncovered.
  • Forensic Psychology
    You’ll be provided with a broad overview of forensic psychology with a specific focus on prison psychology. Prison forensic psychology focuses on the specific application of psychological theory and research methodology to the prison environment. For example, prisons contain many vulnerable individuals and this module addresses ways in which psychological theory is applied to evaluating and then reducing the risks that these individuals face. 'Life' prisoners, as an example, face particular psychological challenges and this module addresses how theory is applied to assist individuals adjust to long periods of incarceration. You’ll learn through traditional lectures and student centred seminars including role-playing. You’ll be assessed through an examination and an essay which focuses on applying theory to real life problems.
  • Invisible Crimes
    Criminology has historically focused on crime committed by the most disadvantaged and powerless members of society. The crimes of more powerful individuals or organisations have been less well studied. This is particularly pertinent to criminal activity in the environmental sector that is often policed by governmental or quasi-governmental organisations. In particular, the crimes committed by corporate entities, or those individuals within them, often have a more profound economic, physical and social cost on individuals than those associated with 'conventional' criminal behaviour. You'll explore the difficulty in defining corporate, white-collar and organised crime, and how they have been addressed by criminologists. You'll address the extent and nature of such corporate crimes, suggests different perspectives on organised crime, and provides a forum for the discussion of environmental crimes. In addition, you'll explore the links in the crime-power-media relationship; examine them through case studies and reportage specific to the cases, as well as texts and theories to inform the broader context.
  • Major Project (Criminology)
    The individual Final Project module allows students to engage in a substantial piece of individual research, focused on a topic relevant to their specific discipline.
  • Neuropsychology
    You'll be introduced to major neuro-psychological syndromes following brain damage. The most frequent syndromes in clinical practice such as aphasia, amnesia, agnosia, dementia, epilepsy and Parkinson's disease are discussed. You'll be introduced to a variety of different tests and assessment procedures applied in clinical neuropsychology and for each of the clinical syndromes, relevant neuro-psychological and psychiatric symptoms are outlined. Problems in the assessment of brain-damaged patients as well as treatment procedures available are also discussed. You'll become aware of the theoretical concepts of cognitive processing derived from the study of brain-damaged individuals. One major question will address the way in which the study of brain-damaged patients can help us in the understanding of brain functions. You'll gain insight into the relation between brain structure, cognitive processing and observable behaviour by looking at case studies of neuro-psychological patients. This will be done by discussing published individual case descriptions and by studying symptoms of patients in video demonstrations. Concepts, theories and experimental methods of cognitive neuroscience and neuro-psychology is evaluated as well as therapeutic approaches in the neuro-rehabilitation of brain damaged individuals. Finally, the potential mechanisms underlying cortical reorganisation after brain injury and underlying learning of new information on healthy individuals is discussed.
  • Preparing for Work
    Learn about the connection and journey from higher education to future employment and prepare for the next step in your career. You’ll evaluate your learning achievements, identifying your strengths, weakness and skills.
  • Psychological Therapies
    Gain an introduction to some of the main methods of psychological interventions used by clinical, counselling and health psychologists in therapeutically helping people. These interventions are used to assist people in strengthening their capacity to manage and cope with their lives, and help work through some emotional difficulties. You’ll cover core theoretical principles and techniques used in various psychological interventions, when working with individuals, as well as with families and groups. You’ll also focus on the therapeutic relationship and interventions used to assist clients and patients to make meaning of their distress.
  • Psychology Project
    You’ll have an opportunity to develop, conduct and analyse your own research project in an area of psychology that interests you. You’ll ethically evaluate your research, carry out an in-depth literature review of that area, formulate hypotheses based on that review and design a study to test these. After collecting the data, you’ll analyse, evaluate and discuss your findings, and present them in project form.
  • Sex, Sex Offending and Society
    Sex offending has become a major concern of governments, academics, policy analysts and pressure groups around the world, yet the problem remains little understood and inadequately addressed. You’ll examine how certain activities have come to be defined and regulated as sex crimes and how particular definitions generate specific legal responses and treatments. You’ll explore legal, policy and practice responses which have meant that many women not only suffer as victims of rape, but also at every stage of the criminal justice system. You’ll also learn about sexual offending, underlying theories and its consequences from the perspectives of offenders, victims, society and the law. Each week, your seminars will include a structured and planned debate and you’ll embark on the creation of a documentary, encompassing details of sources and a group blog of how the product came about.
  • Sex, Sexuality and Gender
    Learn about the interdisciplinary exploration of the study of human sexuality and draw on research from social, health, and developmental psychology, as well as examples from sociology and anthropology. Ultimately, you’ll explore the key elements of what it means to be sexual beings.
  • Youth Justice
    Explore areas relating to youth crime and the different methods in which they are managed within the criminal justice system. Discuss the difference in treatment between young offenders and adult offenders within the court system and the reasoning behind such policies. You’ll cover legislation arising from the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, such as anti-social behaviour orders and the more informal anti-social behaviour contract and how these have been extended through the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003. You’ll explore the different roles found within the Youth Offending Service, allowing you to gain an understanding into the diverse services that can be provided to young offenders. You’ll also examine the various orders given by the courts that they must supervise, such as Reparation Orders and Supervision Orders, in addition to the Pre-Sentence reports that they must complete for the courts. You’ll look at Detention and Training Orders and the different facilities in which those subjected to such an order may be placed. As general attitudes change over time, as so do attitudes to the kinds of behaviour that is labelled as criminal, so you’ll realise that 'criminal' is no more than a label attached to different types of behaviour the different times in different societies. You’ll look at the criminal law in England and Wales and at the powers that the police possess to bring offenders before the court as well as various aspects of the criminal act such as actus reus and mens rea.


Throughout the course, we’ll use a range of assessment methods to measure your progress. These include written and practical exams, essays, research reports, oral presentations and lab reports. You’ll also write a dissertation on a subject of your choice.
