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.

Assessment is varied throughout our course. There are term time assessments including, case studies, essays, group work, poster presentations and individual project papers and critical reflections. A significant number of modules will also have exams which will take place at the end of the teaching period.
