Career opportunities

Criminology is a diverse and fascinating subject, and the transferable skills you develop during your time with us will set you up for a number of paths you may not even have considered.

Recent graduates have gone on to work in areas such as criminal justice system-related professions, police and offender management (eg Probation Service), community justice, national intelligence and security agencies, charity and voluntary sector organisations, government and teaching.

Our BA Criminology programme has employability skills embedded throughout, and you will have access to our specialist careers and employability programme with regular workshops run by careers events throughout your degree. These sessions cover careers ranging across a broad range of professions, and the opportunity to network with our previous graduates.

If you plan to pursue a career in Criminology and areas related to criminal justice, our BA Criminology programme also hosts tailor-made sessions including Criminology Question Time, which gives you the chance to learn from and network with panellists from the police, probation, intelligence analysing and the third sector.
