This course is well-established which invites you to combine the understanding of human behavior, development, thoughts and emotions from Psychology and develop this within the context of the study of crime, social order and social control that is central to the study of Criminology.
Through the application of theoretical understanding and practical experience this course aims to debate and resolve questions such as:
- What is crime and what drives people to commit crime?
- How laws are enforced and how does this affect behaviour?
- Why is crime concentrated in particular areas? How can crime be prevented?
The course is able to offer students access to excellent facilities and resources for research in social, cognitive, biological, developmental and personality psychology. In addition, highly experienced and professional staff deliver engaging and relevant course content.
Within Psychology you will learn new ways of understanding how and why people think and act as they do. As the ‘problem’ of crime has increasingly become a matter of public and political concern, so the prevention of crime has been prioritised as a matter of social policy. The programme addresses each of these issues and many others in a systematic and methodical manner.
