Criminology with Psychology (with Foundation Year) at Teesside University, Middlesbrough - UCAS

Course summary

This course includes a foundation year - ideal if you need additional preparation or if you don't have sufficient grades to join Year 1 of a degree. Course details: Criminology is the study of crime within society, but, what is crime, why do people offend and what should we do with criminals? Why do we focus on crimes of the powerless, are crimes of the powerful more harmful? What is the role of the police and the criminal justice system? How does the news and media shape our understanding and experience of crime? How do race, gender, age, sexual orientation and class shape experiences of crime and victimisation? How does our more globalised world shape localised experiences of crime? If you have an enquiring mind, are interested in the psychological application in response to these questions and being part of the solution, then criminology and psychology is for you. You explore criminological issues alongside a psychological focus. Studying psychology gives you a deeper understanding of behaviour and how it is influenced. Psychology’s applications are found everywhere, from half-time team talks to the lighting, music and layout of supermarkets and shopping centres. You link criminological and sociological approaches to crime and justice to more psychologically-focused perspectives on these issues. You gain research and study skills and can explore other aspects of psychology with your option choices. You graduate with a thorough grounding in theoretical criminology with psychology, and specialist knowledge gained in your module choices, which can be as diverse as drugs and domestic violence. Top reasons to study this course: 1. Staff are research active which underpins their teaching, and means you gain a contemporary, authentic learning experience. 2. Guest speakers from within the criminal justice system share lived experiences and case studies. 3. Build up your general interest in criminology to specialise in your final year on your own piece of research. 4. Opportunities for work experience or a work-related learning project, including Volun-tees, across criminal justice areas such as drug projects, probation and victim support. After the course: You can enter a broad range of careers including the probation service, the prison service, the police, voluntary organisations, the public sector and postgraduate training or study.
