Our BA (Hons) Criminology and Law degree is an innovative and flexible course, ideal for people interested in developing a career in criminal justice and its related sectors. This programme will give you a solid foundation in the disciplines of criminology and law and the synergies between them.
As you progress through the course, you’ll choose to specialise in either criminology or law or continue with an equal focus on both. The programme explores the functioning of the criminal justice system and efforts to address the many issues of crime, as well as the contemporary challenges that it poses to society.
Why study this subject?
In England and Wales in 2020 there were 5.7 million criminal offences committed (ons.gov.uk) and the news is often dominated by crime, justice and the law.
Our Criminology and Law degree will give you a deep understanding of crime in the real world whilst preparing you for a role in the criminal justice system.
The skills you’ll learn could take you to a career in social and youth work, refugee and victim support, community development and advice work, as well as the police service, the probation service and other areas of the criminal justice system.
