This module introduces students to the skills, qualities and attributes needed in applying for jobs, including how to recognise and make the most of their experiences, reflecting on their learning, knowledge and how to market themselves effectively in all aspects of the application process. It also provides specific information about a number of organisations both inside and external to the criminal justice system which might offer suitable careers. The content will be delivered by Swansea Employability Academy, Criminology staff and representatives from external organisations. The assessment for the module is also linked to the Swansea Employability Academy Bronze award.
This module aims to define the theoretical and empirical contours of criminology as a distinct discipline and to place these in the context of the historical, social, economic and political developments from which the discipline emerged. Central to this enterprise is the question: what does it mean to be a criminologist? To explore this question, the module will combine an exploration of key criminological concepts with explorations of seminal criminological texts, textbooks and blogs.
This module involves intensive private study, is compulsory for Criminology and Criminal Justice students and available to joint Social Policy students. It will be delivered via a series of 10 lectures over a 2 week period in Semester 2. The module introduces students to the research and essay writing skills required to produce a dissertation in Higher Education. A mixture of lecturer-led and independent learning methods will be used to prepare students for the task of completing their dissertation. Emphasis will be placed on individual and group work; and the development of skills in critical evaluation and higher-order learning. Please note that ASC208: Research Methods in Criminology is a pre-requisite for this module. Additionally, students will need to secure a 2:1 or above in this module in order to undertake an empirical dissertation at level three. Students who do not secure a 2:1 will pursue a literature based dissertation.
This module will equip students with the skills needed to produce a dissertation of between 8,000 and 10,000 words. A series of 6 compulsory meetings with dissertation supervisors followed by optional meetings, enables students to complete this task
