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.
You'll be taught in interactive and varied ways, with plenty of opportunity for you to discuss and debate ideas, so your course stays stimulating and thought-provoking. This will also help you develop expert communication skills, something that employers really value.
You'll be introduced to a range of literatures from the sixteenth century to present day; from Africa and the Caribbean, Asia, the USA and Europe. There's lots of choice, so you can focus on your own literary interests.
