BA (Hons) Criminology allows you to think about and address a variety of questions, from what are the causes and consequences of crime, through to how are crime and law-breaking defined. The course provides you with an excellent understanding of national and global trends in contemporary British society and situates crime within this context. You will be introduced to up-to-date and critical knowledge of the criminal justice processes and policies, as well as the key agencies operating within it, such as the police, courts and prisons. As you progress through this course, you will have increasing flexibility to pursue your own specific criminological interests through a range of optional units. The course is supported by the use of innovative teaching methods, particularly interactive learning, and you will develop a wide range of transferable skills, which will prove valuable for an array of graduate careers inside the criminal justice system and beyond.
You must have successfully completed an United Kingdom Year 12 (or equivalent senior secondary school qualification) . Equivalent qualifications may also include a recognised post- secondary diploma in the relevant discipline with the required grades. Meeting the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee entry. Your application will still need to be assessed and accepted. If you don't meet the entry requirements, there may be other programs you are eligible for that can lead you to your preferred program.
