Kingston University London

Course Introduction

**Why choose this course?**

Kingston is one of the only universities in the London area to offer a criminology and forensic psychology programme at undergraduate level.

The course will give you a comprehensive understanding of crime, victimisation and responses to crime. It encompasses broad social and political environments of crime and crime control, as well as individual motivations, psychological influences and experiences of deviant and criminal behaviour and its effects.

You'll see how your studies apply to real life through court observations, empirical research and analysis of case studies. You'll also have opportunities to volunteer in organisations aligned to the department, like Victim Support, advocacy groups and justice campaign organisations.
