Description

University of Central Lancashire has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Taught by those with academic and professional experience in the subject, this course will develop the student's ability to understand the criminal justice system, at both theoretical and operational levels, from UK and international perspectives. The core module applies social science to explain why crime concentrates in specific places at particular times. Then by analysing social, economic and political influences (including youth, race, gender and media), it explores how different societies attempt to control crime and offenders. This leads the student into examining the constituent parts of the CJS process, exploring the challenges surrounding risk assessment, diversion, sentencing, policing and prisons.
