Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2010-11

CONTEXTUALIZACIÓN. Tiene como objetivo situar la asignatura en el perfil profesional, en el plan formativo del grado y su coordinación con el resto de asignaturas.

Es necesario incluir esta asignatura de introducción a la Criminología al comienzo de los estudios de grado, ya que va a aportar al alumno una serie de conocimientos básicos sin los que le será difícil comprender asignaturas posteriores. Se trata de una asignatura de presentación de los contenidos que va a estudiar posteriormente en otras asignaturas. La familiarización con la terminología criminológica será igualmente de gran ayuda para la comprensión de las materias que se van a impartir en cursos posteriores.
