Why choose this subject?
How can we seek to understand why people commit crimes? Throughout the two-year course, students will investigate the reason why people commit crimes and how we can try to reduce the crime rate. Students will look at individual cases as part of the course and take a trip to the Law Courts for observation.
Some of the questions we will ask…
- How do we decide what behaviour is criminal?
- What is the difference between criminal behaviour and deviance?
- How do we explain why people commit crime?
- What makes someone a serial killer, or abusive to their own families?
- What are the roles of personnel involved when a crime is detected?
- What investigative techniques are available to investigators to help identify the culprit?
What will you study?
- Changing Awareness of Crime
- Criminological Theories.
- Crime Scene to Courtroom
- Crime & Punishment.
How is this course assessed?

The Criminology course offers a specialist qualification that focuses on particular aspects of employment within the appropriate vocational sector.

Students can also apply to university and continue studying Criminology.
