Learn and debate with criminal justice academics and professionals
What should the role of the police be? How do victims experience criminal justice? Are there alternative responses to crime instead of prosecution and conviction?
On this course, you’ll learn alongside specialists from the University of Sheffield’s Centre for Criminological Research and hear from those with firsthand experience of the criminal justice system, like the police, probation officers, former prisoners and criminal lawyers.
This is an introductory course and anyone can enjoy it without prior knowledge or experience of the subject. A basic knowledge of criminal justice will be helpful but is not essential. The course will focus on criminal justice in England and Wales but is designed so that learners from any country can participate.
The course will be useful for those considering an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in the fields of criminology or criminal justice.
