Why choose this course?

Our programme tackles a fascinating array of questions from why people commit crime to how it affects society, historical landmarks in the justice system and high-profile cases which had a ground-breaking impact on the legal arena.


You will have the opportunity to study criminology from a range of perspectives including social, political and psychological, focusing on modern methods of policing, development of policy and the workings of magistrates and crown courts.


It is vital to us that our students are fully prepared for the world of work upon graduating. This is why the programme covers a mixture of theoretical and practical modules, leaving you ready to enter a wide range of sectors including youth justice, probation, prison, the police and voluntary organisations.

You will also examine criminal law and the role and work of the agencies that make up a modern criminal justice system, as well as taking part in site visits.

In addition, students are introduced to a variety of voluntary work opportunities and have the chance to learn from visiting lecturers such as judges, police, probation and youth justice staff who work in the criminal justice system.
