Subject

Criminal justice

Criminal justice is a subject of inquiry that requires an inter-disciplinary approach to analysis. Essentially, this scrutiny involves understanding criminal behaviour and the societal/institutional responses to it. However, by engaging in this exploration you will soon realise that any serious intellectual investigation of this phenomena will lead you to considering far more then criminal behaviour itself. Dostoyevsky himself stated “The degree of civilisation in a society is revealed by entering its prisons.”

Criminal Justice and Employment

Often employment is viewed as a consequence of a degree rather than an integral component in its design. To address this fault, employability is directly spoken to and scaffolded at all three levels of the programme. By directly incorporating employability it is hoped that this will culminate in students graduating with a clear pathway to employment, recognition that employability is a life-long process and a galvanised graduate identity. Too many graduates still lack confidence upon graduation and it’s important that course design attempts to engage and support this in the same way it engages with the complexity inherent within academic debate.

What kind of graduate can I hope to become?

The key objective of the programme is to produce students who possess an academically rigorous degree earned within a stimulating, relevant and rewarding field. The wider aspiration is the hope that the critical mind-set developed on the programme will lead to wider social reform, personal empowerment and satisfying employment in social and personal communities that historically struggle to accommodate change.
