Why study Criminology at Manchester?

Criminology is a diverse and fascinating subject, and at Manchester you’ll explore some of the challenges that criminal justice systems face today. You’ll work closely with highly-regarded academics involved in cutting-edge and world-leading criminological research, while learning from experts across psychology, law, social work and probation practice.

You can also study four-year degrees featuring a year abroad at one of our partner universities. International study in your third year is an excellent opportunity to see the world, experience new cultures and expand your professional network.
