This unit draws together key concepts, themes and debates in criminology and applies them to current issues. The unit brings the workplace to students by way of running regular practitioner-driven seminars with key employers of criminology graduates. 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 an electronic portfolio that serves to enhance knowledge and skills in criminology and can be used as an employment resource for ongoing career development.
