Overview

As an academic subject, criminology has its basis in both academia and practice with a primary focus on research and debated explanations for crime, victimisation and deviance, and responses to those crimes, by societies and individuals.

The inter-disciplinary nature of the subject is mirrored in the construction of the programme. The core discrete criminological learning is complemented by modules in Psychology, Law and Sociology, prompting shared learning with students from other disciplines. It is an active and lively course that moves away from traditional teaching of the social sciences to embrace the contemporary and innovative topics and practices of 21st century criminal justice.

Career opportunities

Criminology graduates are able to engage with and draw upon a range of intellectual and critical processes in the decisions they make, including the identification and significance of different value positions to everyday practice.

This means that they make decisions which are not only rigorously analytical in scope, but also demonstrate active engagement with the different value positions representative of the groups, communities and institutions involved in crime and criminal justice.

Graduates will gain a wide range of skills and knowledge that will attract employment from a variety of agencies and organisations in the criminal justice sector, whether public, private or 3rd sector.
