Certificate in Investigative Psychology


Certificate in Investigative Psychology

This course aims to highlight how we may apply psychology to the specific applied area of crime scene analysis. The focus of the course will be on the sub-field of offender profiling and crime scene analysis, and the main psychological principles upon which offender profiling is based will be outlined. This will be done with particular emphasis on the three key areas of Investigative Psychology as it applies to offender profiling:

  • Gathering information from the crime scene
  • Making decisions about this information and
  • Analyzing the behavior at the crime scene

The certificate is aimed for professionals currently practicing in the field, mainly law enforcement, crime analysts, clinicians and other professionals in the criminal justice arena, or for those who already have advanced degrees (Masters degree and above). It is run in a flexible online format that allows professionals working fulltime to engage with the course around their other commitments. Live sessions are recorded for those who cannot attend.
