Ascentis Introduction to Criminology Certificate

Criminology is the scientific study of crime and criminals. It draws together methods and perspectives from a range of social sciences, including Sociology and Psychology.

The Ascentis Introduction to Criminology Certificate Level 2 is designed to provide you with an effective experience in developing study skills and the initial stages of learning about the discipline in terms of the concepts, theories and perspectives which characterise Criminology.

It is designed as an introduction to the study of Criminology, and as such it does not provide, on its own, progression to work in criminology or a career as a criminologist or in any other forensic service(s).

"During my time at the University Centre South Devon I definitely gained the research bug, which has contributed to my success today. I went on to receive a first-class honours in Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies at Plymouth University, and had my dissertation on domestic trafficking published in the Law and Criminal Justice Review. I have my tutors and the UCSD to thank for spurring me on to the success I'm now enjoying."Annie Westcott
