Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Criminology explores the complex and interconnected issues of crime, criminal behaviour and criminal justice. The degree will equip you with the knowledge and skills required to understand why crime and criminal justice have become defining issues for contemporary society and attained such a prominent position in popular culture. The course develops students' appreciation of the complex interplay between local and global forces and their relationship to socio-legal transformations, with particular reference to life in the 21st century metropolis of London.The BSc (Hons) Criminology degree draws on the expertise of academics experienced in investigating a variety of topics including: crime, policing, victims, media representations of crime and youth crime. The course considers how Crime is defined, How criminality, victimisation and crime control relate to social issues such as class, gender, ethnicity, politics and the economy and why crime and justice have become defining issues for contemporary society. This course is delivered by academics who are internationally acknowledged as leading researchers in their field. The course is part of the City Q-Step Centre programme meaning you can undertake a Quantitative Methods pathway in your final two years of study. You will develop a range of technical, communication and interpersonal skills which increase graduate employability. These include: critical thinking, scientific data analysis, policy report writing, multi-media presentation skills and teamwork. Our central London location and proximity to key criminal justice institutions - including the Central Criminal Court (the 'Old Bailey'), three police services (London Metropolitan, City of London and British Transport), and numerous prisons - facilitates our distinctive approach to the applied study of crime and criminal justice.
