Timetables aren't normally given out until nearer your start date. However, here is some information on the modules from the course leader:
He said.. "Please let the students know that these modules can be subject to change. If they want to know more it would be great for them to come to an open day."

It will cover key authors and theories that have attempted to explain the causes of crime, the definitions of crime and the nature of the criminal justice system.
