Course summary

**If you want to study a criminology course, that will guide you towards employability and/or further study, then this is the one for you!****This course is concerned with the investigation, analysis, and production of knowledge in relation to crime, criminal behaviour, criminal activity deviance, criminal justice and crime cessation. It is a discipline that takes its influence from sociology, law, psychology, psychiatry, history, biology, chemistry and geography. The programme provides a challenging and high quality academic grounding for the study of crime and society. It seeks to do this by encouraging you to develop a critical understanding of crime and justice, informed by criminological and sociological theoretical debates and research. It aims to give you the opportunity to develop your own understanding of crime and the criminal justice system.** This degree will help you to become increasingly important within the local and national employment market. For example, criminal justice services are one of the largest employers in the area and the country. The newly formed Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) manages the local probation trust, the community rehabilitation companies (who are a partnership agency), and the majority of the local prisons (Hull, Lincoln, Moorlands, North Sea Camp, Humber). As these services modernise, they are looking for workers who have high-level qualifications. The police service are increasingly looking for graduates. This could be at an entry level or as part of a graduate scheme. Furthermore, court services also look for graduates from the local area, and this degree will help you to prepare for such a job with this large employer within the criminal justice system. In addition to this, the local councils are a significant employer and they offer a wide range of jobs and opportunities for graduates at all levels. With the help of our employability team, this degree will ensure that you are able to enter professional services such as these, with a good quality degree that is sector relevant.This course is primarily designed for face-to-face learning, with attendance during lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses, or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed, TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted, with some lessons taking place in small groups and others using online sessions and support.
