This course offers a varied yet focused choice of subjects through which you will be able to develop your interests within the specialised field of criminology.Within this course, students will explore the who, what, where, why and when of criminology. That is the understanding of who and why people commit crime, where crime takes place, and the motivations for different crime types.This is done through a range of exciting and engaging modules which are taught by expert lecturers who are well published in the field. In this programme we explore the concept of policing and how different countries have chosen to manage crime.
