With crime frequently in the news and always a politically important issue, a degree in Criminal Justice has never been more relevant. Criminologists are concerned with questions of who commits crimes, and how offenders should be punished. However at the heart of criminology are fundamental questions about how ‘crime’ is defined, how criminal law is made, and how definitions of crime and justice may vary historically and cross-culturally or be subject to differentiation by the class, race or gender of the offender or the victim. The course also provides insights into how crime and victimisation are constructed in the media.

The emphasis on professional development within the course means that students are well equipped for the changing job market, and our graduates have gone on to work in professions such as social work, community work, teaching and criminal justice agencies, as well as local government and non-governmental organisations, or the private sector.
