Criminology

This course is for both recent graduates and practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of the debates surrounding crime and the criminal justice system. The course offers an exciting opportunity to study both theoretical criminology and the more applied aspects of criminal justice. The course is very flexible and offers students the opportunity to either concentrate on the more theoretical aspects of criminology or centre their studies on the more practice-based area of delivering criminal justice.
