Your learning extends beyond the classroom through real-world engagement, including valuable connections with criminal justice agencies.

Career opportunities Studying criminology opens the door to working in many different areas that shape society. You could secure work in the prison and probation services, the police, Home Office, Ministry of Justice or the wider criminal justice system, as well as being equipped to pursue a career in the legal profession. Equally, many criminology graduates work in the charity sector or for campaigning organisations focusing on advocacy or criminal justice reform. As a social scientist, your ability to dissect, analyse and research crime, its causes and its potential solutions, will be highly valuable to employers.
