For you if you want to explore the causes of criminal behaviour, attitudes to crime, criminal investigations and the wider social impacts of campaigns for change.
Criminology is very much a social science course, exploring behaviour and attitudes in the field of crime. You will also be looking at criminal investigations and legal procedures and will develop your analytical skills by exploring examples such as campaigns for change and delving into the usefulness of criminological theories.
Criminology could well be an appropriate subject option for students interested in other social sciences and law.
You will be actively encouraged to take on volunteer work or work experience to enhance your future prospects.
A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4 or above including English language.
Assessments will comprise 60% personal investigation and 40% externally set practical exam. Your coursework is internally assessed and externally moderated.
You will have a 9.55am start, one lesson in the morning, one in the afternoon and a guaranteed 4pm finish. You will also have at least one morning and one afternoon per week free for private study.
You could progress to university to study combinations of law and other social sciences or follow a pathway into a career within the police force or another public service, or social care.
