Criminology and Criminal Justice (with Foundation Year)

This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice but you don’t have the standard entry requirements. First we prepare you for your degree during your Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree. As a criminology student you’ll investigate the nature of crime and criminality, studying society’s response through the criminal justice system. You’ll learn how societies try to control and punish crime and disorder, gaining a theoretical and practical understanding of this fascinating subject. Criminology takes a social sciences approach by studying and classifying crime, and exploring theories around criminal behaviour. As well as the theory, you’ll learn how society deals with criminal behaviour by studying institutions and roles such as the police, courts, prisons and probation service. The course offers a wide choice of options in your final year and you’ll be expected to undertake an independent piece of research on a relevant topic of particular interest to you.
