The WJEC Level 3 Applied Diploma in Criminology
is equal to one A level; this course is taken alongside two other A levels or Applied Diploma courses.
How do we decide what behaviour is criminal? How do we explain why people commit crime? What makes someone a serial killer, or abusive to their own families?
Knowing about the different types of crime and the criminological approaches to theory will give you a sharper insight into the kind of thinking used by experts and politicians to explain crime and criminality. Public law makers are informed by theory and apply them to their own solutions to the problem of crime.
The Level 3 Applied Diploma in Criminology is a qualification with elements of psychology, law and sociology that complements studies in other humanity subjects. Learning is related to authentic criminal case studies.
Criminology is taken alongside two A level subjects.
