Crime and law-and-order issues are never far from the front pages and the attempts of the police and the civil authorities to ´fight´ crime are a never-ending subject of political and policy debate. Westminster´s arresting new combination of Social Policy and Criminology offers you a unique insight into our understanding of criminal behaviour and equips you with the practical skills to understand, research and evaluate policy and the policy-making process.

Criminologists are concerned with questions about who commits crimes, and how offenders should be punished. They are also concerned with how crime and victimisation are constructed in the media. Our expert lecturers in Criminology have many years´ experience of delivering highly regarded theoretical and practical programmes, and our Social Policy programme is delivered by specialists from the prestigious Policy Studies Institute (PSI). Our PSI team are all professional researchers, actively engaged in real policy research and evaluation.
