Overview

Perhaps you’re interested in Criminal Justice and Criminology, but haven’t found the course which feels right for you? Our Criminology and Criminal Justice programme offers cutting-edge modules such as Terrorism and Criminology, Policing and Society, Gender and Crime, War Crimes, Drugs, Crime and Criminology and Imprisonment and Justice, allowing you to explore a range of the most pressing social issues of today.

Throughout the degree, you will begin to understand that Criminology is the study of the anatomy of a crime, specifically its causes, consequences and costs. Criminal justice, on the other hand, refers to established systems for dealing with crime, specifically detection of crime, detaining of criminals, and criminal prosecution and punishment.

If you wish to pursue career opportunities in criminal justice, you will study the different components of criminal justice, and if you’re interested in pursuing a career as a criminologist, you will study the behaviour patterns, backgrounds, and sociological trends of criminals.While both fields are different, criminologists and criminal justice professionals work together in the criminal justice system to thwart crime.

Career opportunities

Graduates can pursue a range of careers, working within the field of criminal justice and beyond. The opportunities are endless but just to name a few you could end up working within the police, probation, youth offending or prison services, crime prevention and criminological research.

You will also have access to the University’s Careers, Employment and Enterprise Service who can help you with seeking work experience, applying for jobs or starting up your own business. If you wanted to further your studies, we also have a number of postgraduate options for you to consider.
