More about Science & Research

Progress within your research & science field

Progress within your research & science fieldWhen working in the fields of science, technology and research, it is vital to stay up-to-date with emerging technology, scientific advances, and regulatory changes. Your research and business will stay at the fore-front of new developments and be well poised to take advantage of them.

Training, courses, seminars, and workshops enable delegates to advance their knowledge in their respective science and research fields.

Scientific courses open up a wide area of possibilities for your career. Science and research short course options can give subject outlines and highlights, while it’s also possible to take a higher education degree in just about any field and even to progress to research level and doctorate studies.

Delegates that embark on courses in science and research can often find themselves with careers in sales, research or business.

Science & research course delivery methods

Course delivery methodsScience & research courses come in a vast range of formats to suit you and your organisation.

After you have found a course that meets your needs, ask the course provider for more information about their course teaching methods. For instance, coaches and trainers can come to your office (in-house training), you can attend an open course with delegates from other companies or you can take an online/distance course.

Points to consider regarding your science & research course are:

  • Where will the course be held? In-company, in the student's home, at one of the course providers’ locations, or online?
  • How will the course be run?
  • Can the course accommodate your specific industry?
  • Will the expected finishing level of the course match your requirements?
  • What qualifications does your course teacher have?
  • What experience does your teacher have in your professional area?
  • What opportunities for organised social interaction for continued learning are provided?

Criminology & Forensic Science

Criminology & Forensic Science CoursesCriminology is the scientific study of the nature, extent, causes, and control of criminal behaviour in both the individual and in society.

Criminology is an interdisciplinary field in the behavioural sciences, drawing particularly upon the research of sociologists (particularly in the sociology of deviance), social anthropologists and psychologists, as well as on writings in law.

Criminology research areas include the incidence, forms, causes and consequences of crime, as well as social and governmental regulations and reaction to crime. For studying the distribution and causes of crime, criminology mainly relies upon quantitative methods.

Criminology has its roots in the mid-18th century, when social philosophers gave thought to crime and the concepts of law, giving birth to the modern concepts of criminology. Over time, several schools of thought have developed. The term criminology was coined in 1885 by Italian law professor Raffaele Garofalo as criminologia. Around the same time, but afterwards, French anthropologist Paul Topinard used the analogous French term criminologie.

Forensic science is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences that attempt to answer questions of interest to a legal system. The questions asked of forensic science may be in relation to a crime or a civil action.

The word forensic comes from the Latin adjective forensis, meaning "of or before the forum." In Roman times, a criminal charge meant presenting the case before a group of public individuals in the forum. Both the person accused of the crime and the accuser would give speeches based on their side of the story. The individual with the best argument and delivery would determine the outcome of the case. This origin is the source of the two modern usages of the word forensic – as a form of legal evidence and as a category of public presentation.

Sociology

Courses in sociologySociology is the study of society. It is a social science that uses various methods of empirical investigation and critical analysis to develop and refine a body of knowledge about human social activity, often with the goal of applying such knowledge to the pursuit of social welfare.

Subject matter ranges from the micro level of agency and interaction to the macro level of systems and social structures.

Sociology is a very broad discipline both topically and methodologically. Its traditional focuses have included social stratification, social class, social mobility, religion, law, and deviance. As all spheres of human activity are sculpted by social structure and individual agency, sociology has gradually expanded its focus to further subjects, such as health, military and penal institutions, the Internet, and even the role of social activity in the development of scientific knowledge.

The range of social scientific methods has also broadly expanded. Social researchers draw upon a variety of qualitative and quantitative techniques. The linguistic and cultural turns of the mid-twentieth century led to increasingly interpretative, hermeneutic, and philosophic approaches to the analysis of society. Conversely, recent decades have seen the rise of new analytically, mathematically and computationally rigorous techniques, such as agent-based modelling and social network analysis.

Know your own skill level and your own goals

Before taking a sales course, consider your own proficiency and your ability and confidence to manage these functions in daily or business situations. The other essential consideration before deciding on training is to know your needs.

Take into account the areas you wish to improve in and note down any specific requirements you have in your role. Browse the different course proficiency levels and talk to the course providers about your own sales goals and if they can focus on your professional area.

Whatever your needs, you can be confident that the right content in your training or course will soon have you meeting your objectives.
