Criminology is the academic study of crime. This exciting and popular subject provides an opportunity to explore the workings of the criminal justice system, approaches to punishment and rehabilitation and the relationship between media and social exclusion and crime.

Study criminology and you will also have the chance to examine the experience of victimisation and differing types of crime: from youth crime to crimes committed by corporate organisations.

Criminology is an interdisciplinary subject that combines elements of Sociology, Psychology, Victimology, Forensic Science, History and Law.
