3 Course Introduction Crime and how to deal with it are amongst the most significant and contentious issues of our time, so it is vital that we understand this subject. Criminology is the study of crime, its causes and effects, and what we do about it. At Liverpool Hope University you will study how crime is defined and who defines it; why some people commit offences; and what happens to those who commit crimes if they are caught. Criminology also studies the impact of the various agencies and organisations that deal with crime: the police, the courts, the probation and prison services, as well as the role of the Ministry of Justice and the Home Office. Criminology is a well-established degree course at Liverpool Hope and is taught by staff with considerable experience at national and international level. Several key criminological textbooks are authored by members of the department. Teaching is via a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials, as well as independent study and you will be encouraged to develop a number of skills and abilities that will enhance your employment prospects. The Criminology team is enthusiastic and dedicated and will help you to get the most out of your course. Criminology is heavily focused on justice - how it is delivered, to whom, by whom and whether or not it is effective. This reflects Liverpool Hope s commitment to social justice both nationally and internationally. 3

4 What you will study Level C (Year One) An Introduction to Criminology and Criminal Justice (lectures, seminars and tutorials) Social Policy and Criminal Justice Policy (lectures, seminars and tutorials) Level I (Year Two) Criminological theory (lectures and seminars) Understanding criminal behaviour (lectures and seminars) Research methods and evaluation (lectures and tutorials) Contemporary issues in crime and justice (lectures and tutorials) Level H (Year Three) Custodial and non-custodial penalties (lectures and seminars) Resettlement, re-entry and desistance from crime (lectures and seminars) Crime, justice and the media (lectures and seminars) Psychology in the criminal justice process (lectures and seminars) Dissertation (one-to-one tutorials) Assessment is by a range of exams, coursework, student portfolios, contributions to tutorials and the dissertation. Recent dissertation titles include: The myths surrounding rape and its effects on victims, Does the end justify the means? Exploring the psychological and sociological implications of women s imprisonment, Role playing games and dungeons and dragons: harmful effects or harmless fun?, Good and evil: the myth of the cosmic war and its implications. 4

5 Employability and Career Opportunities As well as detailed knowledge about crime and justice, students will also learn skills that are vital for employment in a wide range of careers: Critical thinking, analysis and synthesis Problem solving and decision-making Effective written and oral communication Effective use of information technology Numeracy skills Time management The ability to work in a team and independently. As a graduate in Criminology, you will have a firm grounding for entry to a range of criminal justice and related careers. While the police, prison and probation services are the most obvious career paths, the knowledge, awareness and experience of studying Criminology are valuable in a range of related services, as are the capacities to think imaginatively and critically about issues, to analyse data and to present the results clearly, all of which are developed throughout the degree programme. In addition, some graduates will use their degree as a stepping stone to pursue more formal legal training. The Department has close links with a number of criminal justice agencies and students are encouraged to seek relevant voluntary work opportunities. You may also choose to pursue postgraduate study on the either the University s MA Criminology or MA Sociology courses. 5

6 Why study this subject at Liverpool Hope? You will be taught by enthusiastic, experienced staff with reputations for research and writing, with guest lectures from criminal justice practitioners The degree is a cutting edge programme that focuses on some of the key issues facing contemporary society The department receives consistently high levels of satisfaction in a range of student surveys and evaluations You will have opportunities for volunteering and work placements In your final year you will undertake an independent piece of research under the one-to-one supervision of a research active member of staff You will have the chance to acquire a wide range of transferable skills that will enhance employability. 6

7 Graduate Profiles Edward Corner Studying Criminology at Liverpool Hope was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The tutors kept the course material thought-provoking and showed a genuine interest in how students progressed. Also in addition to the world class facilities on offer you have access to some of the UK s most renowned criminologists. All of this lends itself to an amazing academic ride! Hannah Bennett Studying at Hope has been the best experience of my life; Criminology staff are all passionate about their work and this shines through in their teaching. The Criminology degree was stimulating and incredibly rewarding, and this led me to undertake the MA at Hope. I also work as a volunteer project worker with the Liverpool Women s Turnaround project, which helps female offenders and those at risk of offending to get their lives back on track. 7
