Lecturer Dr Lindsey Carruthers was awarded her PhD for her thesis entitled “Creativity and Attention: A multi-method investigation”, supervised by Dr Alex Willis and Dr Rory MacLean.

In addition, Psychology and Criminology staff were delighted to see the graduation of the first cohort of students to complete the MSc in Applied Criminology and Forensic Psychology, which was launched in September 2015. We wish all graduates the very best for the future, and please keep in touch!
