Criminology is much more than the study of committing crimes; it is the understanding of how crime affects society as a whole. You will have the opportunity to study criminology from a range of perspectives including social, historical, legal, political, and psychological.
During this course you will focus on issues such as:
- the motivations behind criminal or deviant behaviour
- contemporary methods of policing and crime prevention
- the workings of the criminal justice system
- and policy development and practice round these important issues.
This is for you if... you are fascinated by crime and its causes, how offenders are punished, how victims are treated and how the criminal justice system functions, from the police through the courts to prison and beyond.
