You will study up to six 30-week modules, the first four of which make up the Dip HE in Crime, Criminology and Criminal Justice (Dip HE CCCJ). Modules 1-3 provide a firm foundation in what the study of criminology involves, how the criminal justice system works and the different kinds of criminal behaviours shown by people across the world. You will explore a range of criminological theories, and consider the roles, responsibilities and actions of agencies within the criminal justice sector.
For the fourth and fifth modules you can choose to consider either criminal justice or youth justice from a practice perspective, focusing on the actual work done by people who work with those who offend and the policies that impact that work. If you already have the Youth Justice Effective Practice Certificate (YJEPC), this will be recognised as prior learning for Effective Practice in Youth Justice, giving you a sixth of the degree already. To complete the full BA (Hons) you will then undertake an independent research project in a topic of your choosing supported by an experienced academic.
Using our unique digital platform, you will learn through video case studies, extracts, reflective activities and interactive quizzes. You will be able to study anywhere and at any time; either online or on the app, which you can use even without an internet connection. You will also have a dedicated Learning Coach who will support you on your learning journey and assess your work.
