Overview

Criminology is a rapidly developing field which draws on insights and methods from disciplines such as law, social science, cultural studies and psychology to explore crime, crime control and justice from a range of perspectives.

In the Criminology (Hons) programme at Keele University , you will examine such issues as the impact of crime on society and on its victims. You will be able to gain insights into how society responds to crime through systems of crime control, the workings of our criminal justice institutions, as well as through media representations.
