Our honours degree programme in criminology focuses on cutting edge, topical and often controversial criminological issues. You'll learn to apply research tools, and access and evaluate qualitative and quantitative data on crime, victimisation and the societal responses to them. With an appreciation of criminological theorising and evidence, you will develop the skills to comment on crime, victimisation, and responses to crime and deviance, including policy questions, at national, international and global levels. **Key features of the course** - Explore controversial issues of crime, harm and criminal justice - Evaluate claims made about crime, criminals, victims and criminal justice - Learn to critically evaluate evidence to better understand criminological problems - Examine the role of both theory and research in shaping knowledge about crime and justice - Explore criminological topics of your own interest in depth in the final year of study We also offer a Diploma of Higher Education in Criminology (W67) that is the same in structure as the first two-thirds of this degree.
