About

As a Criminology student at Kent, you search for answers to these questions by examining the police, the courts, prisons and society as a whole. On this Criminology with Quantitative Research (Hons) programme from University of Kent, you also develop valuable quantitative research skills which are in high demand by employers.

Overview

The School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research is one of the best in the country for teaching and research. Our academics are internationally recognised for their expertise in criminological theory and criminal justice policy.

Adding a quantitative research minor to your programme opens your mind to new ways of thinking. Starting with no assumed statistical knowledge, you graduate with an advanced package of practical quantitative skills alongside subject-specific knowledge in criminology and criminal justice.

In your first year you take introductory modules on criminology, sociology and quantitative skills. You can also choose from a range of options covering contemporary culture, media and youth behaviours. You will also learn to think like a quantitative researcher, developing a critical eye for statistics and data analysis.

In your second and final years, you deepen your understanding of crime and criminal justice. A wide range of options means you can focus on what interests you: areas covered include drug culture, forensic psychology, youth and crime, the sociology of imprisonment, and terrorism and modern society.
