Criminology and Security Courses

Criminology and Security Courses

Highly addictive TV dramas, such as Law and Order and NCIS have resulted in the growing popularity of the challenging careers within these areas of criminology, security and forensics. The prospect of solving crimes and delving into the mind of a criminal is exciting.

Criminology is one of the most fascinating areas to study and we offer a range of different distance learning courses. They’ll teach you the most important skills and will open the doors to a range of security jobs and also careers in psychology. There's also the possibility of progressing into higher education and studying for a criminology degree or a degree in forensic science. We also offer the rare opportunity to study areas which include forensic anthropology and forensic psychology.

There are also courses to provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge to be qualified for a range of security jobs. Our security management course covers the principles of loss and decision-making within the security environment.

Studying criminology can provide an important stepping stone towards becoming a fully qualified psychologist and continuing onto further study. There are also opportunities to become a forensic psychologist or scientist in order to help offenders make positive changes.

You can learn about:

  • How to understand crime and research criminal behaviours
  • Why people turn to crime and how criminal psychology can be useful to investigations
  • Security management and how to protect a business and its assets
