Hull pioneered the exciting study of criminology more than 40 years ago and has led the way as one of the UK’s leading centres in this area. In that time, we've formed close links with the police and other criminal justice agencies, meaning that our degrees stay up-to-date, practical and relevant. It also means you'll get amazing placement opportunities and field trips to courts, police stations and prisons. You'll also get the chance to work with real offenders through the Learning Together network - which allows students and prisoners to learn alongside, and from each other. And you can expand your skills and experience through a range of rewarding volunteering opportunities - such as the Appropriate Adult scheme. As well as our annual Careers in Criminal Justice event, which allows our students to hear from, and network with employers from the sector, you will learn from lecturers who are experts in their own relevant areas – from modern-day slavery to knife crime; from domestic violence to cyber terrorism. They bring their specialist knowledge into the lecture theatre and help you define and develop your own areas of interest.
