Course summary

Why Criminology? Crime is a feature of social life in every community and society throughout the world. Behaviours regarded as crime constantly change and as such the need for criminal justice agencies and governments to understand crime and how to reduce it continues to rise. This course will help you gain the skills and knowledge you need for a future career that may include working with offenders, victims, criminal justice organisations, crime reduction roles, and many other exciting career paths. You’ll study a wide spectrum of criminal behaviour, from petty theft through to state-sponsored terrorism. And you’ll be encouraged to explore ways to explain crime, investigate crime, reduce crime and respond to crime. This exploration will provide you with a thorough understanding of the criminal justice system including the Police, the Crown Prosecution Service and Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service. How will you learn? * This course uses a range of teaching methods to engage and inspire you. You’ll have the chance to hear from guest speakers such as police officers, drug outreach workers and criminal justice staff. * You’ll take part in debates about the latest issues, such as why people commit crime, how to stop crime, and how to prevent people being victimised. * You’ll have the opportunity to investigate fascinating topics such as sexual offending, cyber crime, environmental crime, criminal investigation, mental health and crime, and violent crime. * You’ll be taught by who have a wide range of research specialisms and who are experts in their field. * Many tutors have worked in the criminal justice system or the voluntary sector, and they’ll use their expertise to give you practical examples of the work you could end up doing. * You'll be assigned one of our expert tutors who will act as your Personal Academic Tutor throughout the duration of your course. * In your second year you’ll complete a compulsory work experience, helping you put the skills and knowledge gained on the course into practice. Previous work experiences within the criminology and policing subject area have included working with youth offending teams, in prisons, police stations, courts, as well as in voluntary agencies supporting offenders and victims in the community. * In your second year you may also have the opportunity to study abroad for a term.
