Focusing on serious crime, you’ll explore the practice and theory of criminal activities, including how crime is detected and policed, methods of social control, and sanctions. By examining different theoretical standpoints, you’ll form an understanding of various Western legal and social traditions and how they compare to each other. You’ll investigate issues such as organised illicit trade and criminal enterprise, using case studies of criminal activities including financial crime, human trafficking, and violence prevention. Our modules will let you specialise in other areas of interest too, such as the nature of violence, terrorism, and policing transnational crime. Most of your teaching will take place in research-seminar format to allow you to develop critical thinking, but your learning will also be supported by lectures, guest speakers and debates. You’ll have a chance to contribute to our research seminar series, and take part in our annual criminology study trips abroad. And if you need advice, our experienced teaching staff will always be available to help you. Course Leader: Dr Anna Markovska
