Criminology

Focusing on serious crime, students explore the practice and theory of criminal activities, including how crime is detected and policed, methods of social control, and sanctions. By examining different theoretical standpoints, students form an understanding of different western legal and social traditions and how they compare to each other: they investigate issues such as organised illicit trade and criminal enterprise, using case studies of criminal activities ranging from financial crime to human trafficking, and violence prevention.

Entry requirements

If English is not the 1st language you will be expected to demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 (academic level) or equivalent English language qualification, as recognised by Anglia Ruskin University.

Course modules

Core modules: Organised illicit trade; terror as crime; major project. Optional modules: Policing transnational crime; violence in context; international institutions and policy.
