Course summary

**Summary**: This degree includes an integrated foundation year if you do not have the appropriate subjects and/or grades for entry to year one of the degree. Who and what constitutes crime and how do we react to it? Why do people offend? Why the preoccupation with crimes of the powerless? How does the news and other media representations such as film, fiction and computer games shape our understanding and experiences of crime? How do race, gender and class shape individuals’ experiences of crime and victimisation? How does our more globalised world shape localised crime experiences? These are some of the themes you explore on this degree.**Course details**: You frame your study of criminology in a wider analysis of contemporary societies, exploring a range of theoretical perspectives and going beyond common sense explanations. You gain insight into key sociological debates and concepts alongside thinking through the motivations for crime, its wider social context and gaining an in-depth understanding of the criminal justice system. You also get the opportunity to think about crime and other social problems at the local and global level. This programme's combination of subjects allows you to focus on and think critically about the social world in which you live. Your dissertation and module options give you the opportunity to specialise in areas as diverse as globalisation, criminal justice and the media society. Many graduates go on to a career with the police or probation services, or into community development roles.**After the course**: Your skills will equip you well for the police force, probation service, prison service, youth work and community development. There are also opportunities for employment within the public sector and for postgraduate study. All programmes are designed to incorporate employability skills development alongside your degree course. Our staff utilise their extensive connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. In addition we offer a series of workshops and events in the first, second and third year that ensure all students are equipped with both degree level subject knowledge PLUS the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits. Our award winning careers service works with regional and national employers to advertise graduate positions, in addition to providing post-graduation support for all Teesside University alumni.
