Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Chester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Teaching takes place at the Parkgate Road Campus.
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.
Over three years you will study a variety of texts from the earliest times to the present day. Through the study of stimulating texts you will develop a range of core skills which will be relevant after graduation to many different roles and employment opportunities.
