Through studying psychology with criminology, you will develop a range of transferable skills that are highly sought-after by employers. These include analytical and communication skills, problem solving and report-writing skills and the ability to apply key concepts.

Some graduates successfully complete professional training or postgraduate study, others establish careers in social work, the police, criminal justice agencies, as well as protection and victim support services. Other professional careers, such as marketing, journalism and human resources would benefit from the transferable skills you acquire during your psychology with criminology degree.
