Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home.Criminology and History offers students the opportunity to develop a lifelong appreciation of the historical past as well as its influence on the societies of today and tomorrow. Alongside this, you will explore the pressing issues of crime and deviance within those societies.An appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where we are today and how we are attempting to shape the future. Through the History strand of your degree, you will learn the skills of the historian as you deepen your understanding of eras, continents and cultures from political, social and religious perspectives. You’ll develop an understanding of different approaches to history and the range of skills and methods used in its pursuit. Criminology draws on insights and methods from disciplines such as law, social sciences, and psychology – as well as history – to explore crime, crime control and justice from a range of perspectives. You will learn about the nature and causes of crime and offending and also explore the methods used to collect and analyse criminological data. Studying Criminology and History at Keele will provide you with important skills to carry through the rest of your life. You’ll develop the sort of enquiring, open-minded and creative attitude which employers are looking for. You could go on to work in the fields of crime reduction, offender rehabilitation or community safety, or as a teacher, librarian, archivist, museum conservator, heritage manager, barrister, solicitor, civil service administrator, journalist, or a politician’s assistant or researcher. You can also aspire to work in areas such as victim support, penal reform and advocacy, the courts or in local or central government. The programme in Criminology and History also features opportunities to gain hands-on experience through volunteering in the community and/or work experience in the heritage sector or in external agencies who work in criminal justice or resettlement.
