About Your Course
Criminology is one of the most exciting of Social Sciences. Crime is an inherently social phenomenon and criminology enables us to challenge taken-for-granted assumptions about the place of crime in society and our responses to it. Crime and our responses to it are the site of much human misery; criminology attempts to cast light on these problems in order that the world of both victims and offenders may be changed for the better.
On this course you will benefit from an exceptional student experience geared to your needs. You will study criminological themes with a team of academics who are working at the forefront of criminological theory such as policing, prostitution studies, domestic violence, sexual offending, as well as race and crime. You will also be offered the opportunity to undertake work based experience with criminal justice organisations like the police, prisoners resettlement projects, youth justice, and probation.
Students who do well on our criminology course will be extremely well prepared to continue into fast-track training schemes for a wide range of professions linked with crime and criminology, including: the police, probation service, prison service, social work, work with young people, UK Border Agency, Revenue and Customs, Serious Organised Crime Agency, Home Office and Ministry of Justice; think-tanks, lobbying groups, voluntary sector bodies working with offenders, victims, or their families, local authorities community work or crime prevention.
