Hull has led the way in the exciting study of Criminology for more than 40 years as one of the UK's leading centres in this field. This course offers you a range of modules designed to train you to become a Criminologisdt in the 21st Century.
Criminology at Hull will train you to appreciate local issues in a global and historical context when tackling current affairs in crime and criminal justice. These will include social justice, gender and health inequalities, environmental crime and sustainability.
You will apply what you learn into practice in our purpose-built replica crime scene facility right here on campus. A recent addition to the university, it provides detailed and realistic crime scenes for you to explore. Get hands-on to collect evidence, explore criminal activity, and see the world of forensic science brought to life.
When you choose one of our Criminology degrees, you’ll get the chance to apply for a semester-long placement with Humberside Police**. You’ll work with areas like CSI, the Special Branch Ports Unit, Community Policing, Cybercrime and the custody suite. You will also visit crime scenes, observe interviews, and collect evidence. Recent students have had the opportunity to investigate policing and security issues.
Our lecturers specialise in current issues in Criminology & Criminal Justice and draw from their expertise to inform their teaching. These include AI & predictive policing, modern-day slavery, knife crime, domestic violence, mental health & crime, organised crime, cyber-terrorism and security issues. Lecturers bring their specialist knowledge and enthusiasm into the lecture theatre to help you define and develop your own areas of interest.
And our annual Careers in Criminal Justice event enables our students to network with employers from the sector.
