Activate Learning has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our new Psychology and Criminology degree will give learners the chance to debate and resolve key questions such as:
What is crime and what drives people to commit crime?
How laws are enforced and how does this affect behaviour?
Why is crime concentrated in particular areas?
How can crime be prevented?
The questions will be answered through the application of theory from Psychology and Criminology. Psychology will give learners new ways of understanding how and why people think and act as they do. Crime is a matter of public and political concern and the prevention of crime has been prioritised as a matter of social policy. The course programme addresses each of these issues and many others in a systematic and methodical manner.
