Overview

Criminology has been taught here for more than 30 years and we are proud of our outstanding reputation in this area. You’ll be taught by internationally renowned criminologists, whose research will feed into their teaching. You’ll examine real-world examples of crime and punishment, and get to grips with the history of how different societies have understood and responded to crime.

You’ll also choose between a wide range of optional modules that cover topics like policing, youth justice and internet crime. We have links with international centres of criminal justice and criminology, including in the US.

Career opportunities

Many of our students enter the legal profession, either as barristers or solicitors. For those planning to become solicitors, we offer an in-house Legal Practice Course. We supply more law graduates to national and regional law firms than any other law school and we’re in the top 10 UK law schools for pupil barristers.

Our former students have joined global, national and regional law firms, barristers’ chambers and have become judges. Three Lord Justices of Appeal are among our former graduates and regularly visit to support us. With all the opportunities and skills on offer here, our students have also taken up careers in the criminal justice system and in a wide range of managerial professions.
