About Your Diploma

The way we think and why we behave in the ways we do is something that a myriad of professionals from a number of sectors have been trying to understand for years, especially when it comes to deviant and criminal behaviour. By understanding what leads people to live life on the wrong side of the law, we can be better positioned to prevent these events from occurring.

By studying social science, we can spot influential elements and patterns in behaviour in those that commit these acts. When we combine social science with crime and psychology studies, we gain more of a comprehension of how criminal actions and deviant behaviour impacts society.

If you would like to work towards a career dealing with criminals, victims of crime and the related systems that exist around them, the online Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Science) Psychology and Criminology Pathway will help you on your way.

As an equivalent to three A Levels, it will enable you to study a degree, and with the range of modules covered, it will help you hit the ground running in university level study. You will learn all about the explanations, theories and perceptions of crime and deviance, the difficulties faced by psychologists in the definition and diagnosis of abnormal behaviour, the effects of imprisonment, and more.

Once you complete this course and a related degree, you will understand the many reasons people commit crimes, the knock-on effect of criminal and deviant activity and the importance of the rehabilitation process.
