The Criminology Advanced Diploma is designed to aid you in increasing your knowledge of the UK Criminal Justice system.
You will similarly learn how theoretical and practical thoughts on crime influence the criminal justice system.
Although we do not assume you already have recent experience of criminology, or any other crime based subjects, we aim to introduce you to new views on crime problems and the debates surrounding them. This Criminology course will introduce you to Criminology as a study which evaluates many key debates. In the course you will examine both criminal behaviour and causes of crime. The way we will do this is by examining theoretical debates in which you will also learn and discuss historical and modern notions of dealing with crimes and their criminals. By taking this course you will also achieve a higher understanding of the UK justice system in modern Britain.
At this level we provide you with essential wisdom on the key principles of the study of Criminology. In addition, we provide you with the necessary information for progression into other fields of specialised crime and justice at a similar level.
