This unit draws together key concepts, themes and debates in criminology and applies them to current issues. The unit offers students an insight into the working environment of key employers of criminology graduates and prepares them for employment in criminology-related industries. The regular seminars will be accompanied with online activities and discussions where students will bridge the divide between ‘theory’ and ‘practice’. Students will be required to complete tasks that simulate the research and policy work required within criminology-related industries, and complete research and writing exercises that will serve as a resource for career development and progression beyond graduation.
