Investigate the causes of crime and the responses to it. By combining criminology with the study of law, you’ll examine the connection between crime, the law and criminal justice. Our links with criminal justice agencies give you incredible opportunities for relevant work placements and visits. You’ll explore how policing tries to maintain order and control crime. You’ll consider the values of the criminal justice system in relation to issues like stop and search powers and detention time limits. And you’ll study how the media represents crime and punishment in films, games and music. 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 via our vibrant Student Law Society Our well-established annual Careers in Criminal Justice event allows our students to hear from, and network with employers from the sector, and 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.
