The BSc (Hons) Criminology with Quantitative Methods offers you the opportunity to specialise in quantitative methods in your final year. You will receive hands on training in quantitative methods and will be given the opportunity to undertake a real world research project while on a placement in a local organisation. The academic discipline of criminology considers a range of questions relating to crime, deviance and social control that includes the academic study of law breaking, law enforcement and the re-integration of offenders into society. You will address a range of criminological questions, using a combination of theory and research methods. Topics include why individuals commit crime and how the key agencies that comprise the criminal justice system respond to criminal behaviour. You will consider young people, the law and the youth justice system, and how social characteristics such as gender, race and social class influence the ways in which the criminal justice system deals with offenders.
