Youth crime is a fascinating area of criminology and our degree, taught in one of the oldest university criminology departments in the UK, builds specialist expertise through both theory and practice in youth justice settings.
This course provides a thorough grounding in criminology with a special focus on youth crime and youth justice and is ideal for those who are thinking of working with children and young people in trouble. You will cover the core domains of criminology, including different types of crime, theories of crime and the main criminal justice institutions and this course seeks to equip you with the skills and methods you will need to analyse these issues. You will study at the centre of leading criminology research, ensuring you graduate with knowledge of the latest policy and practice developments in criminal and youth justice.
There is a strong applied focus to the degree, a concern with the real world problems and with policy and practice. Our criminology department continually produces internationally respected research to investigate models of crime, including youth crime. Alongside a solid grounding in the fundamentals of criminology, you will explore issues of youth crime and youth justice from historical, theoretical, policy and practice perspectives and critically examine the role of 'young offender'. The course combines theory with the study of real-life case studies from within criminal justice settings. We also support you to undertake a placement in the youth justice system where you will gain vital practical and professional experience.
