Course summary

Why study Politics and Criminology? What is the most effective way to police crime? How should society organise systems of justice? Crime, justice and policing are inherently linked to the world of politics. Studying the two disciplines together gives you a unique opportunity to see how they interrelate, and how political processes can shape the criminal justice system and vice versa. Crime affects every economy and every nation across the globe. Yet as societies attempt to address criminal behaviours, the nature of crime is constantly changing. Organisations and societies urgently need professionals who understand the factors behind crime, and how to bring crime rates down. This course will help to equip you with the critical analytic skills and experiences you need to create a career for yourself in this stimulating and rewarding sphere. You’ll look at popular conceptions of crime in the media, and criminal action ranging from petty theft through to state-sponsored terrorism. You’ll also be able to study the ideas and philosophies behind some of the most contemporary political issues in society, and how they are affect theories of crime and crime reduction. We also received 100% overall student satisfaction for politics in the National Student Survey 2020. How will you learn? * Drawing on their research expertise your lecturers will encourage you to analyse social and political change, and what drives the two. * You’ll be given the opportunity to develop your debating and research skills, which could prove crucial in your professional career. * Combining academic discipline with vocational skills, to give you every chance to secure employment once you’ve graduated, we’ll give you the opportunity to undertake a work placement in your second year in a field such as youth justice, charitable organisations, education, media or politics. * You may also have the opportunity to study abroad for a term during your second year. 'The Politics provision at Huddersfield is impressive. The courses offer up-to-date content, delivered and assessed in engaging and innovative ways. The modules are underpinned by fine research and scholarship. The courses are designed to advance not only the academic skills of the students, but a considerable amount of attention is also given to embedding and developing the transferable skills that will serve graduates well in the job market.
