Program description

Criminology BSc (Full-time)

Why study this course?

London has played a leading role in shaping the modern world's understanding of the origins of criminal behaviour. Our honours degree in criminology will allow you to gain a wider understanding of this hotly debated political and social issue, with an opportunity to specialise later on in your degree.

During your time at London Met you'll be taught by practitioners from the criminal justice sector including police and probation. Our staff are research active and their teaching is informed by current specialist research. Their expertise will afford you the opportunity to learn about front line elements of criminological practice.

Our Criminology BSc (Hons) course will delve into the causes and effects of crime and criminal behaviour. It will develop your understanding of criminological theories in the context of specialist areas including organised crime, youth violence, terrorism and security. You’ll also look in-depth at the criminal justice system including the police, judiciary and prisons, examining the concepts of justice and sentencing.

This degree will give you a strong grasp of research methods and expose you to social, political, ethical and historical aspects of criminology. Through optional modules in your second and third year, you'll begin to specialise in areas including crime and media, victims of crime, counter-terrorism, gender and sexuality.
