BA (Hons)Criminology and Criminal Justice with Sandwich Placement

Why choose this course?

Criminology and Criminal Justice is the study of what crime is, why people commit crime and what happens when they do.

During your degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Wolverhampton, you will study all the main areas of the subject – including the police, prisons and theories of crime - and have the opportunity to choose cutting edge research-focused specialist modules that particularly interest you, for example, serious and organised crime, prostitution, terrorism, victimology or youth justice.

You will be taught by lecturers who are actively researching in their fields together with those working in the criminal justice system (such as the police and magistrates), and have opportunities to go on relevant trips in the UK and abroad, including prisons and courts.

Your degree is focused upon building your employability and transferable skills, and as part of that, completion of your modules will enable you to receive the University of Wolverhampton Employability and Enterprise Award at Silver Level. You will have the opportunity to undertake voluntary work modules as part of your degree at every level; the option of taking a sandwich year or a summer placement in the UK or abroad to gain further work experience; and you will also undertake a research project on an area of your choice which particularly interests you, or that you may wish to work in after graduation.
