It is aimed at those who have an interest in how society responds to deviant behaviour and challenges the concept of social deviancy. Your studies will be framed by research from within our Centre for Social and Criminological Research (CSCR) where our areas of expertise include youth crime; community safety strategies; and inter-ethnic conflict. The centre combines psychology and criminology with a focus on real life and online experience, and uses a range of research methods including those online.This degree blends theory with practice through placements within criminology focused organisations and work-based projects, which frame your knowledge with real life case study examples from within the criminal justice system.
