Introduction to Criminology

Learning Outcome


Crime is rampant within our peaceful society. Whenever you surf on your news portal, you shall notice that there is always a piece of news related to theft, smuggling or murders. Sadly, some people indulge in these acts and create turmoil and sorrow for the people around them. But what makes a criminal perform such heinous and unsightly acts? Would it be possible to know the minds of criminals so that they may be caught before they act? Well, to answer these questions, the study of criminology comes to play.

Criminology is the scientific study of crime, its causes, prevention methods, and anything related. Criminologists work through various means to control, reduce, and prevent crime within civil society. It’s a diverse disciplinary field relating to social science and behavioural science while drawing aspects from psychology, biology, and philosophy.

The field of criminology has a long history, but modern criminal justice methods take a more holistic approach to the concept of crime. As we move to restorative forms of justice for the good of our society, it’s essential to understand key theories of crime and how they relate to our system.

Criminology is a hot field, and your understanding of the causes of crime and the ripple effects it has on society itself could put you at the forefront of an exciting career.
