Overview

At this Criminology (Honours) programme from Leeds Trinity University, you’ll be assessed by coursework instead of exams. We do this so you have the chance to demonstrate a deeper understanding and application of theory in a variety of assessment forms.

You’ll explore a wide range of topics, from examining the role of the media in how we understand crime and justice, to explanations for serious violent crime by both individuals and the state. We’ll look at ethical issues arising from historical and cultural differences in the definition and management of crime, as well as how to understand people at the margins of both society and criminal justice, such as women and young people.

Experience is crucial, so you’ll put theory into practice on your two professional work placements. You’ll benefit from our links with local criminal justice agencies, which will give you the chance to gain degree-relevant work experience.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have a thorough knowledge of how the Criminal Justice System works, including how society is policed and individuals are punished. Using the key theories and practices of criminology, you’ll also develop critical thinking skills that will enable you to ask key questions about crime, deviance, and social control.

Career

​A Criminology degree opens doors for a wide range of careers across the Criminal Justice System, including police, prison and probation services. Your degree will give you a good grounding to become a competent and ethical practitioner, which you could use to work directly with offenders as a probation officer or prison services officer. You will also be well-prepared for a more analytical role, such as data analysis for HM Prison and Probation Service or local government.
