University of Chester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Politics is a subject that confronts issues central in everyone’s lives. Politics at Chester is both theoretical and applied. It is about decision-making, conflict resolution and power. It explores the role of the state, government and institutions both domestically and internationally. Politics at Chester asks how we structure society and how society structures us. Moreover, it presents opportunities to engage with and critique ideas, as well as to apply theories to actual situations using case studies and scenarios.
Criminology: At Chester we offer you a dynamic and diverse course. We explore the relationship between criminological theories and criminal justice policies and practices. You will also look at explanations for crime and antisocial behaviour and how the police and courts deal with such matters. Additionally, you will study the role of punishment and the secure estate, and investigate crimes of the powerless and crimes of the powerful. The issue of human rights is integral to our analyses.
