General

Program Description

Please note that the information on this site relates to the programme commencing in September 2016.

The BA Criminology degree at Greenwich is contemporary, global and critical. Students study key transnational issues, including security, terrorism, cyber-crime and the criminology of war. By studying criminology at the extremes - comparing street crime with large-scale state crimes – students learn that the causes, consequences, and prevention of crime operate at the local, national and international levels. Core subjects explore the social, cultural and political debates surrounding crime, victimization, and deviance. Courses cover current concerns within the discipline, including - Youth crime, gangs, and violence - Crime and detection in popular TV and film - Imprisonment, prisoners, and Human Rights - Gender, race, and discrimination - Policing, drugs and organized crime.

Over the three years of the degree programme, students will learn about crime scene investigation, forensic psychology, criminal profiling and the Criminal Justice System. In their second year, students learn how to research crime and criminals. This equips them for a final year research project on a criminological topic of their choice. The programme is designed to enhance students’ academic knowledge, develop their key skills, and provide transferable skills to aid future employment. Ultimately, this degree will provide the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to provide graduates with a range of potential career opportunities.
