    The Diploma in Criminal Psychology course provides you with a fascinating insight into both criminal behavior and the criminal mind. 

    This Criminal psychology course examines criminal behavior, examining the underlying causes in society, how events and experiences can shape the type of adults we later become. 

    Criminal psychologists, also known as forensic psychologists, work within the justice system. They diagnose offenders who might be criminally insane.
