You will gain an understanding of the nature, causes of, and reactions to crime, and explore social and state responses and methods of control and prevention, encompassing major theoretical paradigms, applications and practices within the field of contemporary criminology. This is complemented by a comprehensive overview of criminal psychology. Criminology and criminal psychology are subjects that have grown significantly over the past decade and are now recognised as specialist areas of knowledge in their own right. Post-foundation year, this programme operates within a multidisciplinary framework drawing on psychology, law and sociology, and offers a critical socio-legal approach and an international perspective. We currently offer two modules that you might decide to study; one based in prison (the ‘Inside and Outside Perspectives on Criminology and Criminal Justice’ module which runs in the third year of this full-time Extended programme) and a work placement (the ‘Criminology, the Community and Work-Based Practice’ module which runs in the final year (i.e. the fourth year) of this full-time Extended programme). If you are selected for the ‘Inside and Outside Perspectives on Criminology and Criminal Justice’ course, you will study criminology alongside people currently serving sentences in prison at the prison itself. If you are selected for the work placement, ‘Criminology, the Community and Work-Based Practice’, you will volunteer in an agency that is either part of, or complementary to, the Criminal Justice System. Students selected for the work placement option will typically attend the placement for one day a week during the timetabled teaching weeks of the final year. **PLEASE NOTE**: This degree programme does not provide British Psychological Society (BPS) recognition or accreditation.
