Criminology (study in Dudley) at University of Worcester - UCAS

Course summary

What makes Criminology at Dudley special? Crime is a social and political issue with huge impact, causing a myriad of issues for both victim and perpetrator, and as a result, is rarely out of the news headlines. From your first day on the course, you will consider how criminological theory, and crime itself, changes. Starting with a look at the history of criminological perspectives and theories, you will gain awareness of the emerging forms of deviance and how they are shaped by developments in society. You’ll explore a wide range of topics, from examining the role of the media in how we understand crime and justice, to explanations for imprisonment and rehabilitation when managing offenders, to apply your knowledge to present issues in our society such as organised crime, gangs and terrorism. This popular course has been designed to bring together the methodological, academic, and practical skills essential to enhance your professional development and career opportunities. As such, you engage with crime related professionals, agencies, and organisations to develop your understanding of how they work and apply newly learnt theories. Additionally, you will have opportunities benefit from our links with local criminal justice agencies to put theory into practice on your work placements. Key features
