Course summary

Our BSc Criminology degree will help you to develop a detailed understanding of the extent and nature of crime and its causes, what the criminal justice system is and how it responds to crime, and the key factors relating to offender rehabilitation.You will also investigate classic and contemporary approaches to crime prevention, as well as the impact of social problems such as poverty, inequality and social exclusion on criminal behaviour.Through studying Criminology at Loughborough, you will address some of the most pressing issues facing contemporary societies, such as: Why do people commit particular crimes? What effects does crime have on individuals, communities and society in general? Can crime be reduced or prevented? If so, what role do the police, the criminal justice system and policy makers play in tackling crime and social harm? Can offenders be rehabilitated in society? If so, how? And how can society help (or hinder) the rehabilitation process?Our Criminology degree brings together theories and methods used to understand crime, deviance and inequality and equips students to critically evaluate the role of policing, criminal justice and offender rehabilitation in addressing the impact of crime on society. Throughout the course you will explore issues of social justice and learn about the ways in which crime and criminal justice policy and practice can be used to support and protect, but also further marginalise some of the most vulnerable groups in society.
