Course Description

Crime may not pay, but studying it does! You may understandably ask why people get paid to study crime and criminal behaviour and why, beyond reasons of remuneration, do people engage in this area of study.

There are a variety of answers to the above questions, built around the following kinds of concerns: both anxiety and fear are common responses to crime; the desire to predict and control crime; the hope of preventing crime through social reactions to it, and the simple desire to learn more about crime and what it can tell us about the society we live in.

This Forensics & Criminology distance learning course also introduces the student to the fascinating subject of forensics.

You will learn how the scene of a crime is assessed and to determine how and when a victim died plus a lot more.
