About Criminology and Psychology at Sheffield Hallam University

We have a long tradition of teaching applied social sciences, and this course forms part of that programme. We offer it in response to an increasing fascination with criminology, which has led to a high demand for the subject. Criminology studies the many causes and effects of crime. Psychology studies the brain and behaviour. This course will appeal if you have an interest in the * study of crime, criminality and criminal justice institutions and processes * individual and the influence of psychological perspectives in understanding human behaviour Crime is a major issue in society and attracts a lot of political and media attention. If you choose to complete a criminology degree you are likely to be interested in how society and government respond to * hate crime * domestic violence and other violent crime * crimes of dishonesty * punishing and rehabilitating offenders * different types of offenders * the police, probation service, youth justice service and the courts The curriculum enables you to look at both criminological and psychological explanations of delinquency. This course equips you with a joint degree through understanding the links between the two subjects and how they affect associated issues. Your studies cover areas such as * the relationship between criminological and psychological perspectives * the modern social and political context of criminal justice beliefs * criminal justice institutions * criminal justice processes The work and expertise of our Hallam Centre for Community Justice and our Centre for Research on Human Behaviour support the teaching on this course.
