Access our distance learning courses directly from anywhere, anytime, and acquire industry-recognised Professional Qualifications essential for advancing in your career.

Specifically, explore the flexible and convenient Criminology Advanced (Level 4) course, an ideal way to gain a diploma qualification. Whether you aim for further education, improved job prospects, or expanded knowledge, this comprehensive course allows you to prepare thoroughly for exams or careers through home study. Plus, it's structured to be accessible and beneficial even if you have no prior knowledge in Criminology Advanced.

The primary objective of this course is to introduce learners to the field of criminology, which seeks to address fundamental questions and explore key debates within this discipline. This encompasses the examination of theoretical debates regarding the causes of crime and criminal behaviour, as well as an exploration of historical and contemporary approaches to addressing criminality.

The course delves into persistent issues in the realm of crime, such as youth crime, drug-related offences, violence, and anti-social behaviour, while examining how society has tackled these problems. Its overarching goal is to foster an understanding of the controversies surrounding the roots of criminal behaviour and how theoretical and practical concepts surrounding crime inform policies related to crime and criminal justice.

Offering a customised qualification at Level 4, this course imparts essential knowledge of the core principles of criminology and the study of crime and justice. Beyond providing a foundational understanding of criminology, the course facilitates progression by equipping learners with the skills and knowledge necessary for further study in specialised crime and justice topics at Level 4.

It's important to note that while you may already hold firm opinions about crime and criminal behaviour, the course does not assume any prior experience in the study of crime. While its primary aim is not necessarily to challenge your existing perspectives, it may introduce you to fresh ways of approaching crime-related issues and the ongoing debates within the field. Through the study of criminology, you'll acquire a new vocabulary tailored to the exploration of crime and criminal behavior, gaining a deeper insight into contemporary crime challenges in the context of Britain.
