Course summary

This course challenges students to engage with contemporary issues faced by the criminal justice system from both a criminological and legal perspective. In the 21st Century, the means by which we respond as a society to crime and victimisation is under greater scrutiny than ever before. How we respond to cases of historic sexual abuse, the use of imprisonment as a just and effective means of punishing or rehabilitating criminals, and the challenges posed by organised crime and international terrorism, mean criminological and legal scholarship are being brought to the forefront. This course is designed to furnish students with the conceptual tools needed to engage with such issues, imparting a broad range of cognitive, analytical and general transferable skills including judging and evaluating evidence, interpreting data, generating and synthesising information, and formulating reasoned arguments. Criminology graduates can go on to work in a variety of different areas including the civil service, police, academia and the National Probation Service - although the combination of both criminological and legal analysis covered by the course offers graduates a wide array of different career choices. Career and Personal Development: Criminology graduates can go on to work in a variety of different areas including the civil service, police, academia and the National Probation Service, although the combination of both criminological and legal analysis covered by the course offers graduates a wide array of different career choices. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.
