What will you study?
The core taught curriculum gives you:
-an in-depth knowledge of contemporary criminal justice policy, practice and politics in local, national and global contexts;
-a critical appreciation of the relationship dynamic between criminological theory and policy making;
-an understanding of the relationship of research to the formation, implementation and evaluation of crime-related policy and practice; and
-an appreciation of current trends in the expansion of criminological issues in the context of globalisation.
A major feature of this course is the fieldwork component, which enables you to gain an understanding of the operational realities of crime-related policies and practices.
