Why do people offend? What is the appropriate punishment or response to this type of behaviour? This degree takes a psychosocial approach to answer these questions and develop your knowledge of offending. We’ve designed this course to focus on crime at a national and global level. Analyse low level nuisance crimes through to terror, corporate crime, and crimes against humanity. You’ll also learn about the wider social, economic, and political contexts of offending. Delve into the impact of offending on individuals and communities. Get to grips with current criminal justice practice and careers in this interesting sector. You could see these roles in a real-world context during work experience in Year 2. Study concepts such as risk and dangerousness. Unravel the mysteries of complex offending, like working with mentally disordered offenders and those with addictions who offend.
