This course provides students with a knowledge of key criminological concepts and theoretical approaches and the necessary skills required to undertake criminological research. The course enables students to demonstrate understanding of the criminal justice system and the political, social and economic context within which it operates. Students will be supported in developing a professional attitude and a responsibility for individual learning and team work. Criminology as an area of study has a lengthy pedigree and you will be presented throughout the course with a range of ideas and theories from several different disciplines including law, public policy, social policy and economics. You will study criminological concepts and issues related to criminal justice, such as crime and deviance, victims, policing, sentencing and punishment, and emergent ideas on state, corporate and environmental crime. These, coupled with knowledge of institutions and structures, will provide you with a wider understanding of behaviour and activity within the criminal justice system. The degree will provide you with the opportunity to gain a combination of theoretical knowledge and a range of skills necessary for employment in organisations with a criminal justice focus within the private, voluntary and statutory sectors.
All years: Criminology topics include: law; public policy; social policy and economics; mainstream concepts of criminology and criminal justice such as crime; victims; sentencing; policing and emergent ideas on equality and human rights.
