Discover forensic psychology and solve a crime using only eyewitness evidence
Despite advances in forensic science, eyewitness testimony remains a critical component of criminal investigations. But psychological research has revealed the dangers of relying on this testimony and how careful the police must be when questioning witnesses.
Using videos of real witnesses, from behind the scenes of a police investigation, this course explores the forensic psychology behind eyewitness testimony.
You’ll get the chance to test your own cognitive skills and see if your investigative powers are as good as police officers’, as you try to solve a crime using nothing but eyewitness evidence.
This course is intended for those with an interest in forensic psychology and/or criminal investigation, and does not require any previous experience of studying either subject.
