Crime, Justice and Society

This is an introductory course and anyone can enjoy it without prior knowledge or experience of the subject. A basic knowledge of criminal justice will be helpful but is not essential. The course will focus on criminal justice in England and Wales but is designed so that learners from any country can participate. The course will be useful for those considering an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in the fields of criminology or criminal justice. If you are thinking about studying criminology, you may be interested to know that our BA (Hons) in Criminology has recently been ranked number 2 in the Guardian University Guide 2019, making Sheffield the (second) best place to study this subject.

I thought the course was far reaching and certainly brought many different views.

challenging but rewarding experience

It is a sharp contrast from the perception of the topic, It has been a challenging but rewarding experience for me and And an eye opener this giving me a broadened view,especiallydiscussingthepractices of other jurisdictions.

hugely value our uk

I hugely value our UK criminal justice system, I want to live in a safe and just society.

insufficient support given through-out

However it seems to me that there is insufficient support given through-out the system (and I would include education services here too) to help people choose not to commit crimes and if they do, after appropriate punishment, to build a crime free life.

I found it both innovative and interesting, with each new day bringing something new to learn, to the table.
