Being a Criminologist

Module code: CR3017

In this module you will have the opportunity to consolidate your learning throughout the degree programme, exploring various ways in which your knowledge and understanding can be applied to the development of a research or placement project that you will undertake in your final year. You will learn about how key criminological theories and methodological approaches can be applied to a range of research topics, and also how these can be applied to ‘real-world’ criminal justice workplace settings. You’ll have the opportunity to reflect on what you have learned during your studies, and how this can be applied in a practical, relevant and topical manner.
