Course summary

**On this degree, you’ll debate the practical, ethical and scientific issues around criminality and punishment. You'll also come to understand the science behind the collection, processing and preservation of evidence.**But this course goes beyond the theoretical – with major components of practical, hands-on learning. You’ll get experience of crime scene investigation and analysing evidence in the lab.You’ll learn specialist investigation methods including document evaluation, fire and firearms investigation, and explosion site CSI. You'll visit courts, police stations and prisons. And you’ll discover how to interpret evidence and how to present your findings in scientific, medical and legal contexts.You'll also get the chance to work with real offenders through the Learning Together network - which allows students and prisoners to learn alongside, and from each other. You can expand your skills and experience through a range of rewarding volunteering opportunities - such as the Appropriate Adult scheme, and have the opportunity to hear from, and network with employers from the sector at our well established annual Careers in Criminal Justice event.You will learn from lecturers who are experts in a wide variety of areas within criminology – including modern-day slavery, knife crime and cyber terrorism – alongside experienced Forensic practitioners using the most advanced concepts and methodologies to develop your scientific knowledge. Together they bring their specialist knowledge into the lecture theatre and help you define and develop your own areas of interest.**Official Team GB partners**Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB?
