Criminology draws on a wide range of human and social science disciplines, and the Criminology (Honours) degree offered at the University of Westminster has been designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of criminology as an interdisciplinary subject area. It will also equip you with the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.
Westminster's criminologists are concerned with who commits crimes and how offenders should be punished, but at the heart of criminology are fundamental questions about how 'crime' is deﬁned, how criminal law is made, and how deﬁnitions of crime and justice vary historically and cross-culturally.
Where better to study this fascinating discipline than in the heart of the UK's policing and criminal justice systems? Contemporary concerns are reﬂected as the subject engages with globalisation and culture throughout the theoretical, qualitative and the empirical.
Graduates go on to develop careers in a wide range of sectors including the police and policing-support organisations, the Probation Service, local government and crime prevention.
