Criminology and Criminal Justice is the study of what crime is, why people commit crime and what happens when they do. During your degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Wolverhampton, you will study all the main areas of the subject – including the police, prisons and theories of crime - and have the opportunity to choose cutting edge research-focused specialist modules that particularly interest you, for example, serious and organised crime, prostitution, terrorism, victimology or youth justice. You will be taught by lecturers who are actively researching in their fields together with those working in the criminal justice system (such as the police and magistrates), and have opportunities to go on relevant trips in the UK and abroad, including prisons and courts. Your degree is focused upon building your employability and transferable skills, and as part of that, completion of your modules will enable you to receive the University of Wolverhampton Employability and Enterprise Award at Silver Level. You will have the opportunity to undertake voluntary work modules as part of your degree at every level; the option of taking a sandwich year or a summer placement in the UK or abroad to gain further work experience; and you will also undertake a research project on an area of your choice which particularly interests you, or that you may wish to work in after graduation. The foundation year of this course is designed to offer applicants who do not have the required qualifications, a programme which will equip them with a robust toolkit of academic, digital and personal skills required for successful study in higher education. It also provides an understanding of, and insight into, a range of disciplines that underpin their chosen programme of study. In the foundation year students will develop their ability to gain the most out of structured in-class study, and also to manage and evaluate their own independent learning. This wide range of transferable skills is of immense value in both undergraduate study and graduate employment. Upon successful completion of the foundation year, students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of their subject area to degree level.
