Course summary

Overview Our Criminology course explores the criminal justice system and crime from a critical perspective and with a focus on social justice. It holds a primary focus on research and debated explanations for crime, victimisation and deviance, and responses to those crimes, by societies and individuals. The inter-disciplinary nature of the subject is mirrored in the structure of the Criminology course. The core focus on criminological learning is complemented by modules in Psychology, Law and Sociology, prompting shared learning with students from other disciplines. This is an active and lively course that moves away from traditional teaching of the social sciences to embrace the contemporary and innovative topics and practices of 21st century criminal justice. The work-placement element ensures that you are prepared for the world of work. The course is delivered at Birmingham Metropolitan College’s Matthew Boulton site. This course combines the academic elements of Criminology with development and application of vocational skills essential to forge a career within the industry sector. Key Features
