Why study this programme?If you have the ability but not the qualifications, this extended degree may be for you. This four-year degree programme includes a foundation year.
The BA Hons Criminology (Extended) programme's foundation year is designed to give you:
An introduction to criminology. An introduction to social sciences. Improved communication skills. Academic writing skills.. After successful completion of the foundation year, you will go on - over the remaining three years of the BA Hons Criminology (Extended) programme - to explore key transnational issues including security, terrorism, cyber-crime and the criminology of war. You will learn about crime scene investigation, forensic psychology, criminal profiling and the criminal justice system in the UK. Then your learning will progress on to how to carry out research on crime and criminals, which equips you for a final-year dissertation research project on a criminological topic of your choice.
The programme is designed to enhance your academic knowledge, develop your academic skills and provide transferable skills to aid future employment. You will be encouraged to volunteer with various criminal justice agencies during your studies.
Among the range of courses offered, the programme includes the opportunity to be selected, separately, for the:
'Inside and Outside Perspectives on Criminology and Criminal Justice' course in which students study a criminology course in a prison, alongside serving prisoners;. and the:
'Criminology, the Community and Work-Based Practice' - a work-placement course which involves students volunteering in an agency that is either part of or complementary to the Criminal Justice System (typically, full-time, students on this course attend their work placement one day a week during the timetabled teaching weeks the course runs in)..
