Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Explore current issues in criminology and criminal justice and reflect upon the related themes of race, ethnicity, gender, state power and war.

You will study various theoretical approaches in criminology and their methods of criminological research. You will apply your acquired knowledge in a dissertation on a topic of your choice and aligned to your personal interests or career ambitions.

You will study a range of interesting, innovative and challenging modules taught by academics who are actively engaged in publication and research. You will have a choice of options in the field of administrative criminology and criminal justice system, critical criminology and social justice, and aspects of international security, crime and justice.

As well as developing key critical and analytical skills, your degree will give you the skills and knowledge to work with the victims of crime, in the rehabilitation of offenders, in crime prevention and in the shaping of crime policy. Depending on your choice of options you can supplement these skills with knowledge applicable for jobs in the non-governmental sector, as well as jobs in the international field of crime and justice.

This course has been designed in consultation with statutory, charitable and voluntary crime related agencies in the region. It therefore reflects the ongoing need for agencies to upgrade the knowledge and skills of professionals and practitioners. We also introduce advanced criminological knowledge to graduates who wish to further their knowledge or interests.

Our course is taught by academic criminology experts, some of which are actively engaged in scholarship, publication and research funded by national bodies such as the Home Office, Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Research Councils. The course also prepares graduates for further research should they wish to pursue a PhD degree.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
