Course summary

We’ve ranked Top 15 in the UK for Criminology (The Guardian University Guide 2022).Why Criminology with Law? As crimes exists where laws prohibit behaviours and make provision for a criminal justice response, Criminology and Law are natural partners. Through a critical social sciences perspective this course will enable you to study the foundations of criminology in partnership with your study of legal systems, criminal law and legal evidence. You’ll explore key explanations for crimes and criminal offending, how crimes are defined and constructed, the work and practice of criminal justice systems and related work, as well as theories and practice of punishment and crime prevention. Through the course you’ll have the opportunity to specialise your study around particular areas of interest in both criminology and law, from crime prevention, criminal justice and punishment, to particular types of crime or offending such as mentally disordered offenders or violent and organised crime. You’ll also be able to explore the law relating to particular criminological concerns, such as: medical, family, immigration and human rights law. How will you learn? * You’ll be taught by experts from both criminology and law disciplines who have a wide range of research, practice specialisms and knowledge of the areas you’ll study. From policing work, prisons, probation and offender management, sentencing, legal advocacy and criminal law practice, they’ll give you an insight into key contemporary debates, concerns and practices, as well as insight into what it’s like working in positions in the criminal justice or legal practice fields. * In your second year you’ll complete a compulsory work experience. Previous work experiences within the criminology and policing subject area have included working with the police, youth offending teams, in prisons, restorative justice organisations, CCTV units as well as in voluntary agencies supporting offenders and victims in the community. * In your second year you may also have the opportunity to study abroad for a term.
