Course Description

This Psychology of Criminal Profiling Diploma is a very intriguing and fascinating course and has been introduced due the increasing popularity of the courses surrounding this subject area - Criminal Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Criminology, Forensic Science.

Every criminal act is committed by a criminal and in seeking to understand the workings of the criminal mind and its motivations, investigators have increasingly turned for assistance to what is now popularly known as psychological profiling. This investigative discipline is based on the belief that a criminal does not just leave physical clues at the scene of the crime but that he also leaves psychological clues. By careful examination and consideration of these clues the skilled profiler endeavours to build up a picture of the likely offender. A skilled profiler combines common sense, observation, background knowledge and geographical factors with a sound knowledge of psychology in his efforts to profile a killer.
