Supporting Theory and Evidence-Based Learning
Crime and Criminal Justice is a complex area of learning. It involves gaining an in-depth understanding of criminal justice law, the causes of crime, criminal behaviour and the place of legal, social and political forces in the controlling of crime.
Achieving this requires access to specialists, excellent working environments, and theoretical sources, including books and case studies, and, of course, knowledgeable lecturers who can inspire and challenge you.
The BA (Hons) Crime and Criminal Justice course from the University of Bolton offers all this and much more.
