On this exciting course, you will delve into the social study of crime, deviance and the criminal justice system.
In addition to units on criminology, the criminal justice system, and the impact of crime on society, we will offer you a wider view of the world of crime, including terrorism, global human trafficking and organised crime. The course also allows you to complete either a 30-week ‘sandwich’ placement, or a shorter four-week placement to provide you with important work experience. Plus, you’ll get the chance to develop your own piece of research based on a topic that interests you, or aligns itself with your future career or study plans, in the form of a final year dissertation.
The BA (Hons) Criminology degree will provide the ideal platform for further specialisation in many careers, such as policing and probation services that require the expertise that this course will give you. Join us on live chat now to find out more or register to meet us at an Open Day.
