Course programme

You will spend equal time on both subjects with Arden, gaining a solid grounding in both legal and psychological knowledge and the practical skills related to these subjects such as debate, research and presenting ideas clearly.

This Law and Psychology Degree will give you a challenging appreciation of both disciplines. As well as an insight into how we think and why we act the way we do, you will also gain awareness of core legal principles and how to apply the law.

The legal elements focus on some of the key issues of individual rights and the way in which the criminal justice system works. In parallel you will look at different psychological perspectives culminating in a consideration of some broader themes relating to society and organisations.
