Hi Everyone,

We'd like to invite you to take part in a debate this Wednesday from 9am - 1pm. The topic of the debate is:

You can find out more about Anna below.

Thanks,
Heather

Hello everyone,

Please feel free to send me any questions you have about Criminology or Criminal Justice!

Perhaps we could start by drawing out the differences between these two areas. Can anyone tell me what the differences are between the two? What do you think they both mean and what is it about each of them that you are interested in studying?

Hello all,

I will go ahead and post some answers to the questions I've posed. Please feel free to get involved - it would be lovely to hear from you!

So, broadly speaking, Criminology is the study of the anatomy of a crime, specifically its causes, consequences and costs. It aims to understand crime and its control as social phenomena. Students pursuing a career in Criminology will study the behaviour patterns, backgrounds, and Sociological trends of criminals. Criminology is interdisciplinary in nature meaning it overlaps with other disciplines such as Sociology, Law and Psychology.

In contrast to this, Criminal Justice refers to established systems for dealing with crime, specifically the detection of crime, the detention of criminals, criminal prosecution and punishment. It is directly associated with law enforcement. Students pursuing career opportunities in Criminal Justice will study the different components of criminal justice and law enforcement systems. So, overall, Criminal Justice is about analysing the institutions and systems that respond to criminal behaviour.

Which of the two are you most interested in? Let me know!

Anna
