APPLIED CRIMINOLOGY

Are you interested in understanding crime, criminals, victims and criminal justice? Would you like to pursue a career in the criminal justice system? Criminology is the study of crime and criminal justice and their relationship with society. This degree therefore prepares you for a range of exciting and remarkable career paths focussing on criminal justice and the treatment of victims and offenders. Crime is ubiquitous in today’s society, it dominates national and world news reports and is a constant feature in entertainment media and this degree programme allows you to explore the true nature, extent and causes of a range of crime types and the methods used to manage crime and criminal behaviour. You will do this by exploring key criminological theories and applying them to understand different types of crime, the experiences of offenders and victims in the criminal justice system, and the ways in which society constructs crime problems and responds to criminal behaviour. The varied expertise of the teaching staff allows you to explore these themes from a range of perspectives. You will also be supported by a range of criminal justice professionals and agencies, who teach on the programme and provide volunteering and networking opportunities to help prepare you for your career.

FORENSIC INVESTIGATION

Forensics occupies a prominent place in the news and entertainment media, and this popular course offers an engaging exploration of this subject.

We believe practical experience is vital, so we house a range of crime scene, laboratory, policing and court facilities to allow you to develop practical skills in a realistic environment. You will develop a solid foundation in core forensic themes of crime scene investigation, forensic science and the interpretation and presentation of forensic evidence. Single honours students have the opportunity to study forensic sciences in greater depth.

You will explore areas including:

  • police investigation
  • cybercrime
  • forensic intelligence and research
  • the criminal justice system.
