At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Criminology and History.

Criminology and History offers students the opportunity to develop a lifelong appreciation of the historical past as well as its influence on the societies of today and tomorrow. Alongside this, you will explore the pressing issues of crime and deviance within those societies. Criminology at Keele is ranked Top 10 in the Guardian University League Tables, 2018.

An appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where we are today and how we are attempting to shape the future. Through the History strand of your degree, you will learn the skills of the historian as you deepen your understanding of eras, continents and cultures from political, social and religious perspectives. You’ll develop an understanding of different approaches to history and the range of skills and methods used in its pursuit. Criminology draws on insights and methods from disciplines such as law, social sciences, and psychology – as well as history – to explore crime, crime control and justice from a range of perspectives. You will learn about the nature and causes of crime and offending and also explore the methods used to collect and analyse criminological data.

Studying Criminology and History at Keele provides you with important skills to carry through the rest of your life. You’ll develop the sort of enquiring, open-minded and creative attitude which employers are looking for, leading to potential career options in the fields of crime reduction, offender rehabilitation or community safety, or as a teacher, librarian, archivist, museum conservator, heritage manager, barrister, solicitor, civil service administrator, journalist, or a politician’s assistant or researcher. You can also aspire to work in areas such as victim support, penal reform and advocacy, the courts or in local or central government.
The programme in Criminology and History also features opportunities to gain hands-on experience through volunteering in the community and/or work experience in the heritage sector or in external agencies who work in criminal justice or resettlement.
