Course summary

Criminology and psychology help make sense of crime, criminalisation, criminals and victims. This qualification will provide you with a critical understanding of these subjects.

You'll look beyond criminal acts and human motivations 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 or 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, social conflict, victimisation and criminal justice- Develops your understanding of how psychology helps explain human interaction, conflict, criminalisation and victimisation- Builds critical, analytical and communication skills through an original approach to teaching criminology and psychology- Enhances your employability in vocational areas, such as the criminal justice system and various social services.
