Explore the fascinating and complex world of crime, deviance, security and insecurity as they relate to careers in crime prevention, detection and security. Develop your understanding of criminological concepts and methods and how they’re used in professional contexts, with opportunities to gain direct experience through a work placement or internship. Complete advanced training in criminological research methods relevant to applied settings, in keeping with our ethos of active and engaged learning.
In core modules including Applied Criminology and Applied Criminological Research you consider and discuss the impact of criminology on a range of professions – which can be as wide-ranging as counter-terrorism, criminal and social justice issues, and global security. Optional modules such as Foundations of Forensic Psychology Practice, Cybercrime and Cybersecurity, and The Criminal Justice System and the Legal Framework provide you with opportunities to develop your particular specialist interests.
You complete a professionally focused extended research project on a relevant topic, which can be informed by your work placement. Part-time students who are employed in a relevant profession can complete a work-based learning module.
The Applied Criminology at The University of Winchester is designed to prepare students for a range of criminological careers, specifically focused around three professional pathways: forensic psychology, policing and security.
