It is common for a psychology degree to be combined with other subjects. For example, we bring our law and psychology degree together with optional law modules – such as Mental Health Law – in our BSc (Hons) in Psychology. We also have modules from our other subject areas, such as criminology and computer science.
Psychology explores the human mind and behaviour, and can cover areas such as mental health, personality, and cognitive development. Criminology focuses on criminal behaviour, societal causes and the effect of crime, and the justice system. However, the subjects can intersect, with psychologists sometimes working with justice system professionals. If you’re interested in both disciplines, we also offer a BSc (Hons) in Psychology with Criminology.

The Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) – the centralised assessment to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales – opens the career path to anyone holding a degree in any subject, however you’ll need a solid understanding of academic law, as this will be expected of you when undertaking the SQE1 and 2 assessments. Therefore, it’s advisable to undertake a law conversion course to build the necessary foundation for solicitor study.
If you’ve studied a Law degree, or a degree in another subject, and would like to convert to Psychology you can study our postgraduate MSc Psychology (Conversion) course.
