Program description

Awarded by: University of Chester

Our foundation degree in Criminal Justice is perfect for those who are looking to pursue a career in the criminal justice system. The degree provides an ideal opportunity for those interested in the causes and consequences of crime. Various aspects of criminology, criminal law, and social policy will form the foundations of the degree with wider considerations towards victims of crime and mental health. It offers a wide and varied syllabus with an emphasis on applying theory to practice, and provides a practical and vocational route to working in spheres such as policing, probation, prisons, youth justice or drugs and alcohol. The diverse and fascinating field of criminal justice is ideal for anyone who wants to get to the root of why people commit crime and how society deals with it. During the two years, you develop the skills required to work in the criminal justice system by ensuring that you can apply theory to practice in risk assessments, pre-sentence reports, action plans and intervention strategies. Turning paper inspiration into practical reality will be a central element of the degree. You will be introduced to both legal and criminological research skills, focusing on criminal law and criminal justice processes.
