Our modules are cutting edge and cover issues in contemporary society such as Radicalisation, Media and Crime and Disability in the Criminal Justice system.
Our teaching team is research active and committed to high student satisfaction within a clear underpinning theoretical framework.
We use different teaching and assessment strategies together with, where relevant, input from outside speakers. We recently had some guest speakers come in to speak with our current students regarding career prospects.
You may also go on trips relevant to your modules and attend academic talks to further enhance your studies. Recently our current students have benefitted from visits to academic conferences in London, the Supreme Court and Central Criminal Court in London as well as Bullingdon Prison in Buckinghamshire.
Criminal justice is a growth employment area and graduates will find themselves well qualified to pursue a range of related careers.
The police, prisons and probation service are perhaps the most popular employment channels, but criminological knowledge, awareness and experience are valuable in a range of government areas including the Home Office. Alternatively, you may choose to work in the private security sector.
You’ll also have the opportunity to further your criminology studies at postgraduate level.
