Overview

Our criminology courses are in the UK top 20, rank 3rd in the UK for course satisfaction and 7th for graduate prospects according to the Guardian University Guide 2020.

A degree combining criminology and sociology examines contemporary social life from a critical perspective, focusing on the causes and consequences of crime and disorder and how communities respond to the challenges of a changing social world. With the opportunity to work with external organisations you will develop the skills for helping to create safer and stronger communities when you graduate.

You’ll be able to pursue your interests to match your career goals through option modules covering topics such as crime scene analysis, crimes against humanity, migration, domestic violence, the power of the media, child sexual exploitation, anti-social behaviour, terrorism and community safety.

We scored 96% for teaching and 95% for learning resources in the National Student Survey 2019.

In your first year you will join a GB-based residential field trip, and in your second year you could investigate issues of crime and social change in Belfast or in Canada. You can also gain academic credit and professional experience through a short internship in preparation for your career.

Organisations our students have worked with include Cheltenham Borough Council, Gloucester City Safe, the Independence Trust, Cheltenham Foodbank, and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to work on real-world projects – from identifying real homicide risks as a member of our Homicide Research Group, to helping the police to reduce anti-social behaviour as a volunteer on our Student Community Patrol.
