Students are assessed through a combination of essays, module specific research projects,

seen and unseen examinations and an individual largely self-directed project which includes an assessed oral presentation.

At level 4 assessments seek to encourage students to specify and describe theories and institutions.

At level 5 assessments require students to extend and critically to evaluate the knowledge they have encountered. Students at this level are also required to produce research reports including data analysis and interpretation.

At level 6 assessments test students’ critical knowledge of applied areas of Criminology and their ability to think and research independently.

This course explores the causes of crime and victimisation, and the ways in which societies respond to crime.  Students gain invaluable insight into the complex areas of crime, deviance and social policy, from the criminal justice system and its impacts on victims and offenders to the ways in which social research can enable social change.  As the course progresses students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge to the real world via a work placement and a series of modules that allow them to plan, conduct, and analyse research first-hand.

Year one: students investigate core criminological concepts and learn the essential research skills to support further exploration of the areas of crime, harm and deviance.

Year two: The second year further develops student research skills as they unpick the causes of crime, examine policing and punishment, and investigate further types of criminality, criminology and deviance.

Year three: This final year provides a greater opportunity to specialise through a range of optional modules, a criminological research project and the opportunity to apply for a placement.

Delivery Location:Northumbria University, Newcastle City Centre Campus
Assessment Style:The course has wide ranging assessment methods that vary according to the modules studied, but all assessment takes a student-centred approach and assignments range from blogs, essays, exams, portfolios, group reports, presentations and individual research projects.

Our Criminology and Forensic Science course is taught by research-active criminologists and experienced former forensic practitioners and will give you an insight into the study of crime and its investigation within the criminal justice system.

The course has two distinct themes – the criminological theme covers the theory of crime, how society is policed and the issues and alternatives to custodial sentencing. The forensic science theme addresses the scientific theory and practical techniques that are used in crime scene examination and the laboratory to allow you to locate, examine and interpret evidential material for the courtroom. In doing so you will be provided with significant hands-on laboratory experience in, for example, analytical chemistry, blood pattern interpretation, DNA analysis and fibre examination.

Northumbria’s Criminology and Forensic Science course is a joint venture bringing the two disciplines, pivotal to criminal justice studies, together whilst acknowledging their individual contribution.  Situated in a science department, the course contains both theoretical and laboratory based analysis of crime investigation. Accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, this professional body acknowledges that this course meets all of the requirements relevant for the provision of forensic science within the criminal justice system.   The course has two distinct themes: crime theory, the policing of society and alternatives to custodial sentencing; and the scientific approach to crime investigation through the study of the core disciplines of body fluids, DNA, trace material and toxicological analysis.  Delivered by research active academics with forensic practitioner and criminal justice experience, the provision is informed by research, policy and practice across all levels.  As students of forensic science, the course benefits from delivery within bespoke crime scene house facility, incorporating 360 filming and interaction, and the University’s mock law court.  The course includes opportunities to specialise, through a range of option modules and the capstone experience of a final year independent research project, focusing on a specific area of interest relevant to crime investigation and the criminal justice system.  Graduates from the forensic science suite of programmes have entered a cross-section of roles within the criminal justice system including positions with forensic science laboratories, scientific support and the police.
