In this course, students will learn about the immediate causes of burgeoning crime rates and the why, where, when, by whom, and how a particular offence was committed. Students will engage with areas of science that impact on the solving and prevention of crime and develop an appreciation of the need for multi‐disciplinary problem solving. As part of the studies, students will examine approaches used to identify crime hotspots and how patterns of crime have changed over time. Students will examine criminal cases and learn how to critically evaluate police procedures, the judicial process and the interpretation of the forensic evidence. This degree can be combined with courses such as Criminal Behaviour or Legal Studies to add depth and breadth to the understanding of Criminology. Students may also combine this major with studies in another area, such as Forensic Biology and Toxicology.
