Course summary

Explore some of the most important debates society faces today and learn how to put them into practice in the real world. What factors can explain the recent rise in knife crime? How is climate change linked to crimes of the powerful? Are prisons the appropriate response to criminal acts? Are we all treated equally before the law? These are just some of the questions that a BSc in Criminology explores, with the option to specialise in Psychology or Law pathways too. By looking at the complex interactions between the state, the offender, the victim and society, you will think critically about how laws are made and how social structures shape both crime and crime control. You’ll engage in theoretical debates about crime and in practical problem solving and research activities, as well as have the opportunity to choose a work placement module to gain experience in situ. Set yourself up for success in a career where you’ll make a real difference everyday: including including probation, policing, the prison service, NGOs, local authorities, the voluntary sector, youth offending teams, teaching, social work and administration.The course is also linked to the LSBU Crime and Justice Research Group that organizes a series of research seminars and public events throughout the year. You will be encouraged to attend and participate in these events to enhance your learning experience and meet with researchers, practitioners and campaigners.
