PG Certificate Criminology and Criminal Psychology

Crime in modern society can only be tackled thoroughly with a good understanding of the theory, history and challenges that face the discipline. Students on our short postgraduate criminology course will consider these and learn how to apply their theoretical knowledge to a number of practical situations. Throughout your study you will develop your skills in presenting reasoned arguments and backing them up with evidence through engaging discussion forums with fellow classmates. At the end of your course, there will be the opportunity to progress onto a PG Dip course or the full MSc.

Course syllabus:

  1. Crime, Causation and Criminological Theory
