Overview

On joining this course you will become part of an exciting, dynamic and distinctive university department which has received continued praise for their high quality, research-rich teaching and learning experience.

You will undertake a relevant work placement – for instance, in a prison or police station – and learn from lecturers who are also leading researchers in a variety of cutting-edge research fields in criminology and sociology. You can take part in modules that speak to our other thought-provoking specialisms within criminology (e.g. victimisation, sex work) and sociology (e.g. happiness, international development), offering synergised breadth and depth across both disciplines.

Career opportunities

Our graduates have a mature intellectual curiosity which allows them to explore the relationship between crime, justice and society on the one hand, and link individual actions to social structures on the other. An active and responsible member of global society, you will use your knowledge to think independently and to challenge the opinions and conduct of others. You will recognise the value of your discipline in shaping society through critical evidence-based responses to crime and criminal justice problems.

Our graduates go on to a wide range of careers including managerial and professional posts in the public and not-for-profit sectors, such as local and central government, the police, the probation service, the prisons system, community safety, health agencies, the civil service and various research posts. Others move into business including management training in the retail sector, media, marketing, information technology and advertising.
