Offender profiling

TV shows such as Criminal Minds or Cracker portray criminal profilers as an integral role within the criminal justice system – but how close is this to what real life profilers do?

This session will include information about the role and discussion about some real life cases.

How effective and accurate are they?

Do they lead to convictions and do they always get it right?

Masterclass award

You will be awarded 16 UCAS points** for attending this masterclass. 

** NB. The reduction will be applied on application. Points cannot be redeemed retrospectively if you have already applied to the university; they can only be redeemed against University of Cumbria courses linked to the masterclass.
