About

You’ll be able to pursue your interests to match your career goals through option modules covering topics such as crime scene analysis, crimes against humanity, migration, domestic violence, the power of the media, child sexual exploitation, anti-social behaviour, terrorism and community safety.

 In your first year you will join a GB-based residential field trip, and in your second year you could investigate issues of crime and social change in Belfast or in Canada. You can also gain academic credit and professional experience through a short internship in preparation for your career. The students have worked with organisations including Cheltenham Borough Council, Gloucester City Safe, the Independence Trust, Cheltenham Foodbank, and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to work on real-world projects – from identifying real homicide risks as a member of Homicide Research Group, to helping the police to reduce anti-social behaviour as a volunteer on Student Community Patrol.
