During our Criminology & Law Degree with Foundation Year, you get the opportunity to refresh your academic skills, and enhance your knowledge of two linked and well-established areas of the social sciences. You will spend equal time on both disciplines while studying via Distance Learning with Arden University. The Foundation Year covers key academic concepts like research skills and basic numeracy, as well as acquainting you with subject knowledge like crime, law and psychology. The criminology aspects of this course explore how crime is controlled and prevented through policing and the criminal justice system, whilst law will concentrate on the English legal system, criminal law and human rights. With Arden University you’ll learn about crime’s complex relationship with social policy by analysing a variety of legal concepts and ethics, as well as the social, psychological and political effect crime has on the world.
