Why choose this course?
Our programme tackles a fascinating array of questions from why people commit crime to how it affects society, historical landmarks in the justice system and high-profile cases which had a ground-breaking impact on the legal arena.
- study criminology from a range of perspectives including social, political and psychological, focusing on modern methods of policing, development of policy and the workings of magistrates and crown courts
- examine criminal law and the role and work of the agencies that make up a modern criminal justice system
- take part in site visits
- have a variety of voluntary work opportunities
- learn from visiting lecturers such as judges, police, probation and youth justice staff
- study in a subject area rated first in the UK for overall satisfaction (WGU analysis of unpublished 2018 NSS data)
- leave ready to enter a wide range of sectors including youth justice, probation, prison, the police and voluntary organisations
I really enjoy that my course is so interactive. Our tutors make sure to get a wide range of guest speakers to come and give us lectures about their roles within the Criminal Justice System.
