Course summary

TEF Gold

Staffordshire University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This is one of the only awards in the country that has been specifically designed to prepare students for work in offender management and community rehabilitation. This course offers the opportunity to study traditional criminology with the additional option to specialise in penology and offender management. The prison population has doubled in size over the last twenty years and critics argue that offender management has never been so challenging. This course provides exciting new modules for people interested in criminology and crime, however the course offers a pathway for people with an interest in prisons and punishment, mental well-being and offender management. The course is one of the first of its kind to offer modules dedicated to mental assessment for non-mental health professionals and identifying suicide and self-harm. We provide our students with the opportunity to concentrate on traditional themes - to further understand the past, the present and to consider what might happen in the future. On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: BA (Hons) Criminal Justice with Offender Management
