Criminology Applied Qualification

Why Study?

How can we seek to understand why people commit crimes? Throughout the 2 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 understand the process from crime scene to courtroom and punishments. 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 are the roles of personnel involved when a crime is detected? What investigative techniques are available to investigators to help to identify the culprit?
