Course description

Crime dominates the news and is a constant feature in entertainment media. If crime is an area of study which interests you then you are likely to enjoy studying Applied Criminology with us.

The course explores the nature, extent and causes of crime and the methods used to manage criminal behaviour. You will learn to cast a critical eye over the processes of criminalisation and crime control and set these processes within wider social, economic and political contexts. We place students at the centre of everything we do. Not only can you be assured of high quality research informed teaching, but also personal and study support.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive – often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into. If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification – many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion – about one in 17 last year – of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Psychology, business and social studies are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.
