The Department runs the following MSc programmes:
MSc/PGDip Forensic Mental Health
The programme examines the complex links between mental illness and antisocial behaviours across the lifespan. Clinical and research training is delivered by a distinguished multidisciplinary team.
There are three distinct pathways within this programme.
The MSc Forensic Mental Health Research is the ideal first step toward a PhD or professional doctorate for psychiatrists or graduates in psychology, neuroscience or similar disciplines. The pathway has a strong emphasis on research methodology and seeks to develop your skills for future scientific work on the aetiology of offending behaviours and the effective treatment of mentally disordered offenders. Our teachers have excellent track records in research in the field.
The MSc Clinical Forensic Psychology equips psychology graduates with the skills necessary to work with mentally disordered offenders. The course is accredited by the BPS Division of Forensic Psychology. It is an excellent stepping stone toward either clinical or forensic psychology training. The pathway has a strong emphasis on evidence-based and reflective practice, with a two-day per week placement in a clinical forensic setting.
TheMSc/PGDip Clinical Forensic Psychiatry aims to produce expert clinicians in the field of forensic psychiatry. The pathway thus has an emphasis on clinically focused research with a strong scientific underpinning. It is an excellent opportunity for clinicians in training to secure a sound evidence based foundation for their future careers, or for consultants to update their scientific knowledge in the field.
