When hearing about crime, the question asked is what possesses someone to do such a thing? A question that seems simple enough yet no one has actually been able to identify what makes a person do what they do. Arguments are that it must be a mental abnormality that causes people to do what they do. Others believe that it is society's impact on a being that influences them. Both arguments being extremely controversial and interesting to me. When I started my first college in , I didn't know what I wanted to do career-wise.
What provokes another human being to commit a heinous crime? A question I've been asking myself since adolescence. I attempted to fathom why many native Germans became so absorbed into Hitler's sick ideology; a question I would later have the answer to. I am interested in studying both fields in the hope of gaining a deeper understanding of the criminal mind and exploring the adverse effects that crime has on our society. My passion for Psychology and Criminology has enabled me to enrol on an Access to HE course in Social Sciences; allowing me to further advance my avid interest in reading, particularly on these captivating subjects.
