Statement of Intent

The purpose of Criminology is to enable learners to weigh up the strengths and weaknesses of explanations, policies and procedures surrounding crime.  This helps to develop critical thinking skills and to make judgements on what works best to reduce crime in society.  This will help students become confident at looking at things from a range of viewpoints, and using evidence to back up claims.   It will also equip them for adult life in terms of wider reading and understanding of society, as well as appreciating that human behaviour has different causes.  Students will also become more knowledgeable citizens in terms of what is covered about the law and legal implications of different behaviours.
