Course summary

**Summary**: Who and what constitutes crime and how do we react to it? Why do people offend? Why the preoccupation with crimes of the powerless? How does the news and other media representations such as film, fiction and computer games shape our understanding and experiences of crime? How do race, gender and class shape individuals’ experiences of crime and victimisation? How does our more globalised world shape localised crime experiences? These are some of the themes you explore on this degree.**Course details**: Studying psychology gives you a deeper understanding of behaviour and how it is influenced. Psychology’s applications are found everywhere, from half-time team talks to the lighting, music and layout of supermarkets and shopping centres. This criminology with psychology major-minor programme provides you with the opportunity to explore criminological issues alongside a psychological focus. The degree links criminological and sociological approaches to crime and justice to more psychologically-focused perspectives on these issues. You gain research and study skills from both discipline areas and have the opportunity to explore other aspects of psychology with option choice. You graduate with a thorough grounding in theoretical criminology with psychology, as well as specialist knowledge gained in your module choices, which can be as diverse as drugs and domestic violence.**After the course**: You can enter a broad range of careers including the probation service, the prison service, the police, voluntary organisations, the public sector and postgraduate training or study. All programmes are designed to incorporate employability skills development alongside your degree course. Our staff utilise their extensive connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. In addition we offer a series of workshops and events in the first, second and third year that ensure all students are equipped with both degree level subject knowledge PLUS the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits. Our award winning careers service works with regional and national employers to advertise graduate positions, in addition to providing post-graduation support for all Teesside University alumni.
