THe Details


This exciting and innovative course is designed for students with a thirst to understand why crime is committed from a psychological perspective. The psychology modules will focus your attention on the biological, the psychological and the social explanations for crime and deviance while drawing upon traditional and new theories. Each module builds on the last to guide you to your chosen topic for the dissertation module in the BA (Hons) Criminology with Psychology. We have volunteering at the heart of the degree with student volunteering in various agencies and organisations including Circles - which provides support and accountability to high-risk sex offenders to help reduce re-offending and prevent any further victims. We aim to build your confidence using a variety of assessment methods using traditional essays and reports but also using technology to challenge your growth.
