Criminology BSc with Year Abroad
Crime and its impact are at the forefront of current political and social debate. We only have to check social media, switch on the television or pick up a newspaper to see headlines about crime and victimisation and to realise how relevant to everyday life the study of criminology has become. The Criminology BSc enables you to explore the reality behind these headlines and examine a topic that is relevant, topical and has real, practical application in contemporary society.
This course is designed to enable a smooth transition to higher education, providing you with full study skills support and a comprehensive research methods programme which will enable you to complete a research project of your own in your final year. The degree offers flexibility and choice with a range of option modules for you to choose from, and you have the opportunity to study a semester (half year) or a full year abroad. The curriculum includes a three-year careers and employability programme, giving you the opportunity to develop the skills you'll need for graduate jobs.
Leicester has one of very few Schools in the country exclusively dedicated to researching and teaching criminology. As such, you will benefit from a pure, focused and definitive education in the study of crime. Our research has real impact in wider society, and it influences policy and practice on matters relating to crime, deviance and victimisation.
