If you're interested in the problem of crime in contemporary societies, our Criminology and Criminal Justice course is for you.
As a criminology student you'll investigate the nature of crime and criminality, studying society's response through the criminal justice system. You'll learn how societies try to control and punish crime and disorder, gaining a theoretical and practical understanding of this fascinating subject.
Criminology takes a social sciences approach by studying and classifying crime, and exploring theories around criminal behaviour. As well as the theory, you'll learn how society deals with criminal behaviour by studying institutions and roles such as the police, courts, prisons and probation service.
Remember, because there are no general education courses, you can earn a bachelor's degree in only 3 years at UEL.
