Our BA (Hons) Criminology and Criminal Justice degree is a broad-based programme of study that explores both the social and personal aspects of crime. It examines some of the most serious concerns we face as a society, such as: What causes crime and criminal behaviour? Can crime be prevented? How and why should we punish offenders? How does criminal justice link to social justice? The course requires a critical engagement with criminology theory, research methods and the history of crime and punishment.
On successful completion of your degree course, you will receive a degree validated by the University of Essex and be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex, Colchester Campus.
