If you find yourself following criminal trials and legal proceedings on the news and taking in an interest in the motivations and back-stories of those convicted, then this course could be what you are looking for, to get an understanding of how and why people commit offences.

This course will help you to understand how laws have changed over time and why some practices that were previously classified as crimes are now treated more leniently, as well as how new legislation is introduced to tackle modern criminal offences.

What will I learn?

On this course you will learn:

  • about the treatment of females in the criminal justice system;
  • how other countries treat crimes and criminals;
  • you will explore some of the punishments and rehabilitation regimes for criminals and discuss how; effective these are in preventing further crime;
  • you will look at the psychopathic personality and how this is linked to criminology;
  • you will explore and suggest why some crimes could arguably be declassified in today’s society.
