**Please note applicants must enter at year 0. There is no direct entry onto the extended provision, students with relevant entry qualifications wishing to apply to Year 1 should apply to course code ‘M211 BSc (Hons) Criminology and Criminal Psychology’ and not ‘L312 BA (Hons) Criminology (Extended)'** The BA Criminology (Extended) programme’s foundation year is designed to give you: - An introduction to criminology - An introduction to social sciences - Improved communication skills - Academic writing skills After successful completion of the foundation year you will go on - over the remaining three years of the BA Criminology (Extended) programme - to explore key trans-national issues including security, terrorism, cyber-crime and the criminology of war. You will learn about crime scene investigation, forensic psychology, criminal profiling and the Criminal Justice System in the UK. Then your learning will progress onto how to carry out research on crime and criminals, which equips you for a final-year dissertation research project on a criminological topic of your choice. The programme is designed to enhance your academic knowledge, develop your academic skills and provide transferable skills to aid future employment. You will be encouraged to volunteer with various Criminal Justice agencies during your studies. 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.
