Develop a speciality in the strand of criminology which most interests you. Graduate with the knowledge and skills you need for a fulfilling career in an essential field.This course provides you with an understanding of the causes of crime and victimisation. You will make sense of how society responds to crime and criminal behaviour by studying the criminal justice system and punishment. You will begin to understand how characteristics such as race, gender, age and social class relate to individuals' experiences of crime, victimisation and justice.This course allows you to tailor your study to suit your interests and graduate with the knowledge and skills you need for a fulfilling career. You can explore specialist pathways including: policing, surveillance and crime prevention; inequality, diversity and gender-based violence; psychology, mental health and offending; race, racism, and criminal justice; and young people, crime and justice. The additional pathway of 'applied criminology’ allows you to undertake a placement in a criminology setting. From this, you will gain valuable work experience. As part of the ‘applied’ pathway, you will also have the opportunity to visit the criminal courts and prisons, as well as hear from practitioners. You can also take advantage of a number of volunteering opportunities in relevant work organisations.This course provides an excellent foundation for a career in a number of criminal justice agencies, including the police, probation or prison services.
