If you have an enquiring mind and are interested in understanding why criminals commit their crimes, then studying this new degree will develop your understanding of the behavioural, social and psychological aspects of crime. The course also goes that bit further and includes modules on criminal justice and criminal law, examining how and why offenders should be punished. The subject continues to develop at a rapid pace and is delivered by active researchers in criminological investigation. You will explore issues concerning how crime is defined and managed in our society and will have the opportunity to specialise so that you can tailor your degree depending on the career path you are interested in e.g. policing, the prison service, forensic psychology or social work.
