BTEC Level 3 Criminology, Psychology & Law
Criminology, Psychology and Law is a level 3 programme where you will undertake three different but overlapping subjects. It encompasses the study of theories of crime.
You will study:
- Criminology is the study of the reasons why individuals commit crimes. By understanding why a person commits a crime, we can develop ways to control crime or rehabilitate the criminal.
- Psychology is a fascinating and varied subject. This course offers an exciting opportunity to explore many different areas of psychology, providing a broad basis for later specialisation. The applied nature of the course provides a platform to put theory into practical use.
- Within your Law classes you will explore the complexity of the English Legal System with all its fascinations and flaws. You will examine the dichotomy between law and morality and of how this impacts on society. You will look into the future of the legal system and on how technology will change the way lawyers work forever.
