Criminology is a discipline that examines 'crime' and 'deviance', and the processes through which the criminal justice system responds to these phenomena. Criminology also considers how certain behaviours come to be defined as criminal or deviant in the first place, and how definitions of a 'crime' and 'criminal' differ significantly across time and space. Studying criminology at Salford will provide you with a sound understanding of the key conceptual and substantive issues involved in the study of crime and criminal justice. This course will develop your critical awareness skills, and introduce you to the nature and scope of criminological research. You will also be able to connect to key institutions and criminal justice practitioners.
During your first year of study, you will undertake modules such as Criminal Justice and Human Rights, Crime and Society, Social Divisions and Inequality and Culture, Power and Identity. Here you will examine key criminological issues and institutions and some of the key sociological underpinnings to criminology. Your second year will include modules such as Theoretical Criminology, Media Crime and Justice, Prisons and Punishment and Violence in Society. You will have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge of selected topics by choosing three optional modules in your second year. In your third year there is one compulsory module, which is an independent study activity. You will also be able to choose three optional modules. Examples of modules include: The Criminal Justice Process, Extended Essays and Work: Practice and Reflection.
