Summary

What constitutes a crime and what is a just punishment? You may have some ideas about how to answer these questions, but different countries and communities handle them in very different ways. This course will provide you with a thorough understanding of cutting-edge and important topics within criminology and criminal psychology.

On this PG Dip, you will explore offences such as violent crime, sexual crimes and fire setting. You will also examine a range of perspectives on race, gender, sex and class in the criminal justice system. At the end of the course, you will be able to continue your studies and advance onto the full Masters programme.
