EDUCATIONAL AIMS OF PROGRAMME

This Programme provides students with knowledge and a critical appreciation of the relationship between social policy and criminal justice. Broadly, it gives students an understanding of the social, political and economic contexts within which policies are formulated and implemented. More specifically, it traces the development and practice of criminal justice policies and social policies by state institutions; it also analyses the effects of such policies and practices in a variety of national and international contexts. The mix of the disciplines of Criminology and Social Policy provides students with an appreciation of the importance of social divisions, inequalities and diversities in relation to crime, harm, victimisation, criminalisation and criminal justice.

Students on this Programme learn to describe a range of key concepts and theoretical approaches within Criminology and Social Policy in a range of national contexts. They will be able to recognise contemporary debates around the definition of needs, social problems, and crime, and relate these to social diversity and inequality. They will be familiar with key concepts and theories associated with the analysis of well-being, crime and social welfare. They will also understand the issues around the appropriate forms of state, private or informal intervention in relation to social problems. They will gain knowledge of policies in specific fields of social policy and crime control and punishment. They will also acquire the ability to critically evaluate policies using a range of empirical data and be able to recognise different research strategies and methods.

The Programme aims to foster self-motivated learning and to develop the capacity to undertake independent study. General transferrable skills are also embedded in the design of the Programme, which are aimed at enhancing the employability of graduates, particularly in policy relevant, criminal justice and other careers.

Learning Outcomes: Knowledge & Understanding

On the completion of this course successful students will be able to:

describe a range of key concepts and theoretical approaches within Criminology and Social Policy in a range of national contexts

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Students are introduced to a broad range of sociological and social policy approaches and perspectives in level one, before specialising in criminological theory in level 2 and beyond. This ensures that students are equipped with knowledge and understand of a broad range of social issues including class, inequalities, race, mental health, disability and welfare provision. This provides a foundation on which criminological theory and appreciation of the impact of social issues on crime and the CJS can be fully developed.
A range of teaching methods are employed including lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops, field visits, and supervised independent learning. Many of these teaching methods are enhanced by the use of visual technology, such as PowerPoint presentations, dvd clips, handouts, and key materials being made available through Queen’s Online.

Methods of Assessment

Knowledge and understanding are assessed through unseen timed examinations, coursework assignments, oral presentations, seminar and tutorial contribution and multiple choice tests.
