The aim of the BA (Hons) Criminology with Psychology (Top Up) is to ensure that students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to pursue a career in the vast range of options within criminal justice agencies; community organisations and psychological fields. Understanding the human behaviour and factors contributing to general patterns of behaviour, psychological functioning and experience are key to understanding and predicting criminal behaviour and formulating criminal justice responses to crime. This degree will give students an understanding of crime, crime control and criminal justice alongside the biological, social, clinical and cognitive factors that influence behaviour. Careers that students pursue include working for the courts, probation, police, immigration service, working with young offenders or working in supporting roles in a wider range of fields such as homelessness, refugee work, victim support, or working with voluntary or community organisations.

The tutor will use convergent and divergent questioning in order to steer and develop student learning, with the specific aim of expanding their knowledge and understanding of criminology. Students will examine multiple theoretical perspectives. Cognitive skills will be developed through the use of a range of teaching materials and strategies including multi-media tasks (incorporating video and internet-based research) and tutor and student led discussions and activities. Classroom based group research and response exercises (these also incorporate group work and discussion) will also be focused on, ultimately allowing for tutor feedback and input if deemed necessary or requested. Additional tutor feedback outside of the classroom will assist in the cultivation of these skills. Student-centred activities that incorporate aspects of research and group work will also be used within seminars, allowing for students’ understanding to be constructed collaboratively and in accordance with real-world scenarios. This will be a full time programme, however the timetable is planned for delivery over 2 days maximum 3 days. This will include class room based teaching sessions and some online sessions
