Criminology uses a range of disciplines to examine criminality and the criminal justice system. Whatever pathway you follow you'll be introduced to the historical and contemporary perspectives of criminology before exploring the legal, psychological and sociological aspects of criminality. At first, this includes a brief analysis of relevant theory - the psychological, sociological and legal dimensions and the dynamic relationship between these internal and external influences on behaviour - i.e. the nature/nurture debate.
Early Childhood Studies (0-8 years)
This course will enable you to develop your understanding of early childhood from birth to eight years old, discovering how children develop, learn and think. You'll explore the importance of meeting children's needs and how these needs can be met. You'll consider the challenges and opportunities in children's services, and look at childhood from a range of perspectives. We'll encourage you to use your own experiences in early years to enhance your knowledge and develop your understanding of early childhood.
