Program description

Awarded by: Anglia Ruskin University

You will consider; whether criminal behaviours are learned or inherent, social order and resistance to it and measures that are available to sanction prohibited deeds. The course is designed to provide a range of skills which will equip you with far-reaching knowledge of the agencies and processes included in the criminal justice system. The course combines theoretical and criminal procedural frameworks with the intellectual challenge of social science giving the opportunity to contemplate and reflect on some fundamental questions of human behaviour: Why do we create laws? Why do people break them? Why do we respond as we do? How can we prevent future crimes from occurring? Using real-life case studies, theoretical perspectives and the framework of the law, you will tackle the phenomena of crime from an exciting and contemporary standpoint.
