Course programme

During our Criminology & Law Degree, you get the opportunity to enhance your knowledge of two linked and well established areas of the social sciences. You will spend equal time on both disciplines with Arden University through dedicated Distance Learning.

The criminology aspects of this course explore how crime is controlled and prevented through policing and the criminal justice system, whilst law will concentrate on the English legal system, criminal law and human rights.

With Arden University you’ll learn about crime’s complex relationship with social policy by analysing a variety of legal concepts and ethics, as well as the social, psychological and political effect crime has on the social world.
