If you are interested in examining perspectives on the causes of crime and the role and function of the criminal justice system then this degree explores the background to, and recent developments in, criminology, social justice and human rights. Criminology is a dynamic, fast-moving discipline which reflects social change and criminal justice responses to it. Focusing on the police, imprisonment and the courts, you will analyse the significance of social class, gender, sexuality and race in the provision of justice and rights, exploring the relationship between power, crime and social change. You will explore the spectrum of crime, from antisocial behaviour and domestic violence to corporate crime, genocide and state crime. Visiting academics and experts will enable you to put your studies into context.
