Course summary

What causes crime rates to rise or fall, and who benefits? How can we deal with offenders? Can crime be prevented? Studying Criminal Justice and Criminology, you assess all areas of the criminal justice system, from prevention to sentencing, developing your own view of what works and what doesn’t.In your first year, you take introductory modules on criminology and criminal justice, sociology and law that lay the foundation for your future studies. In your second and final years, you build on this knowledge and can also choose from a wide range of modules that allow you to focus on areas of particular interest to you. Areas covered include: the history of the police, victims and crime, forensic psychology, young people and violence, and women and crime.This degree also includes the option of spending a year in professional practice at the end of your second year. This is an excellent opportunity to put theory in to practice and develop contacts in your area of interest, while gaining the relevant work experience employers look for. The School also has excellent links with local outside agencies who may be able to support placements such as the probation, services, the police and customs and excise.It is also possible to spend a year or a term abroad at one of our partner institutions. You don’t have to make a decision before you enrol at Kent but certain conditions have to be met during your studies before you can change to the year abroad.The School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research is one of the best in the country for teaching and research. Our academics are internationally recognised for their expertise in criminological theory and criminal justice policy.
