What will I learn?

This course examine the fascinating connection between crime, justice and the law. Investigate how crimes are dealt with by the legal justice system, the causes of crime and the criminal mind itself. You’ll explore current directions in criminology and crime control policy, alongside changing perceptions and representations of crime. We provide the practical experience employers demand - career areas include: probation, policing, the prison service, NGOs, local authorities, the voluntary sector, youth offending teams, teaching, social work and administration.

Career opportunities

Students take part in voluntary work in the police service, the prison service, legal advice, victim support, domestic violence and child abuse agencies, youth offending and youth mentoring schemes. Many prefer to work for the police or criminal justice services, where there are countless opportunities to help the community with plenty of room for specialisation.

A humanities degree also has the real advantage of opening up careers in a number of professions such as teaching, social work, administration and higher level education. Other graduates have forged exciting careers in research, public relations, advertising, retail, management and media-related work.
