Criminology Skills covers both study skills and research skills in one manageable volume. The text is designed to enable you to develop an integrated understanding of the key skills required to succeed in your study of criminology.

A three-part structure introduces you to the skills of finding source materials and takes you through the academic skills you'll need to succeed in your degree before finishing with a section on research methods. The book provides an ideal introduction to the key study and research skills that you will need to demonstrate during your study and practice of criminology.

Criminology Skills first helps you establish a strong skills foundation before incrementally building to a more advanced level increasing the competence, and confidence, with which you will be able to approach projects which require strong academic and research skills.
