Students at the Department of Criminology benefit from the latest, innovative facilities to assist in their studies.
Realistic, simulated environments include two mock court rooms, a Magistrates' and Crown Court, and an interviewing suite. We are also exploring the use of virtual environments as a way to develop case study analysis.
For those studying the routeway BA (Hons) Criminology, Policing and Investigation you will experience simulations of police interviewing environments for both suspects and witnesses, with access to tape recording and video playback analysis.
Crime investigation files are prepared using computer-based technology and the crime data analysis requirements of the degree are supported by appropriate statistical and analytical software.
You will have access to the University's computer laboratories, while oral presentation of evidence will be set in one of two mock court rooms and also supported by video recording and playback analysis.
