Teaching

  • ASC109 Foundations in Research

    This module is intended to give students a foundation in research methods that are relevant to the study of Criminology. Teaching will focus on current issues in criminology and criminal justice, notably research led by staff within the Criminology Department, and, through the module, students will be encouraged to gather and assess a wide range of information from a variety of sources, including; criminology books, journal articles, the Internet and the media in order to understand important themes in Criminology and Criminal Justice and the different ways they are presented. The module is intended to be challenging and thought-provoking, providing an opportunity for students to broaden perspectives, deepen understanding of contemporary criminal justice issues and to consolidate and apply research-related skills that they have thus far learnt during their studies. .

  • ASCM17 Understanding Crime

    This module aims to introduce students to the main explanatory approaches used in criminology, with an appraisal of the aspirations, scope and limitations of each. The focus is on how criminologists have used different paradigms of explanation, what insights these have generated, how they have informed research, debate and policies concerning crime, and the extent to which they have received empirical support.
