Course description

In addition to thinking through these criminological issues, you explore criminology from a youth-oriented perspective, allowing you to consider youth transitions, youth culture and youth politics in depth. You explore the relationship between education, training and work, and how these factors influence a young personâ??s transition to adulthood, as well as considering transitions into a range of behaviours. You also explore youth justice policy and issues around young people and the criminal justice system. And you get the opportunity to think through issues affecting young people at the local and global level. You graduate with specialist knowledge of criminology in a youth context, and here you're in the right place. Teesside has been described as a research laboratory because of the nature and speed of its social change.

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.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
No prizes for guessing what by far the most common job for graduates in social work is! There's a shortage of social workers in some parts of the UK, and graduates can specialise in specific fields such as mental health or children's social work. If you decide social work is not for you, then social work graduates also often go into management, education, youth and community work and even nursing. Starting salaries for this degree can sometimes reflect the high proportion of graduates who choose a social work career, as not all job options for social work graduates pay as well as other job sectors – but social work graduates still get paid, on average, more than graduates overall.
