About this Unit
The unit introduces students to the major theoretical approaches within criminology, from the eighteenth century criminology of the Enlightenment through nineteenth century criminological positivism to contemporary forms of critical criminological theory. It does this through a careful study of the work of particular thinkers associated with these traditions and the international body of scholarship in the field of criminology. Students will explore a range of issues and apply criminological theory and research in an integrated way while developing their skills at working in groups.
