Course summary

Criminology and psychology help make sense of crime, criminalisation, criminals and victims. Studying this qualification provides you with a critical understanding of both subjects. You'll be able to question and develop your own beliefs and understandings about crime and harm. You'll consider criminal acts and human motivations, and then look beyond them to examine the social conditions in which crime occurs, the exercise of power in response to crimes, the nature of conflicts when people interact (individually, in groups and as nations) and how and why societies determine what they will and won’t tolerate. **Key features of the course**- Helps you understand how criminology makes sense of crime, harm, conflict, victimisation, criminal justice and criminalisation- Develops your understanding of how psychology explains human interaction and conflict and how this helps interpret crime, criminalisation and victimisation - Builds advanced critical, analytical and communication skills, and takes an original approach to teaching criminology and psychology.- Enhances your employability in vocational areas, such as the criminal justice system and various social services. - Registration is expected to open in March 2020 for courses starting from October 2020. We also offer a Diploma of Higher Education in Criminology and Psychology (W57) that is the same in structure as the first two-thirds of this degree.
