Course summary

Criminology

Summary

Study criminology at the University of Roehampton to explore fascinating questions such as: what is justice? Who defines criminal behaviour? And how can we reduce harm in society?

Criminology draws from a range of other disciplines including sociology, psychology and law. On this exciting degree, you will study contemporary problems relating to crime prevention, criminalisation and social control.

Criminologists study crime, the criminal justice system and society’s response to the impact of criminal behaviour. You will develop a critical understanding of how the criminal justice system operates, and the relationship between punishments and crime prevention. Criminologists also analyse challenging problems relating to harmful behaviours in society and assess a range of solutions.

Career options

Studying criminology opens the door to working in many different areas that shape society. You could secure work in the prison and probation services, the police, Home Office, Ministry of Justice or the wider criminal justice system. You will also be equipped to pursue a career in the legal profession.

Our careers team is available to support you from the start of your studies until after you graduate. They will help you build your CV, prepare for interviews, and meet and learn from successful graduates working at the top of their careers. You’ll also have opportunities to work with our partners across London and beyond, and to attend a Roehampton jobs fair where you can find out about graduate opportunities and meet employers.

Sociology

Summary

Gain insight into the global issues we face in modern society by studying sociology at Roehampton. Our department is rated one of the best in the UK for the impact of our social sciences research.

Sociology is about exploring the building blocks of society. It’s the study of the connections that bind us together: families, organisations and social groups.

This degree will help you understand how societies are created and how they change. You will learn how educational attainment, ethnicity, gender and geography all play a part in people’s place in society, including the resources they accumulate and the networks they build. You’ll leave with a different view of other individuals and the world around you.

Overall, there’ll be many opportunities to gain practical experiences as preparation for work. You will leave with the tools to continue developing your analytical thinking, and your communication and leadership skills.

Career options

Sociology develops essential skills for working in a variety of industries and businesses including the government and charities. You could build a career in the criminal justice system, community development or social work. You could also work in the media, campaigning, marketing, public relations or as a development officer.
